About the Site

The world is more connected now than ever. Half the world’s population is now online, and billions of connected devices are connecting a wide variety of our daily activities to the Internet of Things. While these online connections bring opportunity, they also create risk, including large-scale data theft, privacy violations, phishing scams, ransomware, and malicious information operations that affect millions of people around the world each year.

Addressing this challenge to the digital economy, requires innovative cybersecurity practices and tools to defend the integrity, privacy, and utility of the Internet ecosystem. Although businesses, private citizens, and government agencies all share responsibility for enhancing cybersecurity, the government plays a singular role.
