As a leading cybersecurity company, we have a unique insight into the way in which the cybersecurity threat landscape has changed over the last decade. According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, crime syndicates, terrorists, and nation-states are engaging in cyberattacks to steal billions of dollars in intellectual property, disrupt businesses, and threaten governments. These sophisticated and malicious threats are capable of damaging or shutting down vital parts of the global digital infrastructure (GDI), including harming government entities and critical infrastructure. Such threats negatively impact economic and social development as well as consumer trust in technology.
As a result, policymakers are actively pursuing new or modified cybersecurity laws and regulations that will have a lasting impact on the way in which governments and the private sector respond to the cybersecurity challenge. McAfee is dedicated to taking an active role in the public policy debate on how governments, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector can work together to craft policies that will make our world safe from cyberattacks.
