The United States Government, critical infrastructures, American business institutions, and our personal data are being compromised by nation-states and hacker groups. Their intent is to conduct cyber warfare, paralyzing our infrastructure, stealing our intellectual property, conducting espionage, and gaining access to our credit card, bank account, and Social Security numbers."
