"The world has become irrevocably dependent on the convenience, access, and empowerment of the cyber world. Wireless internet, cell phones, satellite communications, and networked infrastructure allow the transfer, storage, and dissemination of massive amounts of data and touch all aspects of the economic, political, and military world. This unprecedented capability to connect a globalized world carries significant risk and opportunity for cyber criminals, spies, and state or non-state adversaries to exploit cybersecurity weaknesses for their own gain. This paper frames the discussion of cybersecurity by outlining current US policies and argues a successful national cybersecurity effort must emphasize clear prioritization and delegation of responsibilities, must leverage existing US cyber centers of excellence, and should take advantage of lessons-learned from US space policy."
