After recent headlines on government and corporate data breaches and an election cycle filled with unprecedented cybersecurity concerns, from hacked email accounts to threats of vote tampering, the American public’s awareness of cyber threats has never been higher. But can that attention be mobilized now to make progress in updating the nation’s cyber strategy? With the many challenges facing the new administration, a unique opportunity presents itself to both act quickly and decisively while also providing innovative ideas that could build an effective plan to prevent, respond to, and recover from increasingly prevalent cyber risks and vulnerabilities.
