We live in a digitally connected world. Almost all business transactions, public utilities, or security measures rely on networks that are connected to the Internet. That is why cyber threats pose an enormous challenge to our country. Whether it’s rogue hackers, organized criminals, or state actors, our public and private networks are facing an unprecedented level of cybersecurity threats.
