Prioritizing Cybersecurity

We must protect our nation’s information infrastructure by upgrading our cybersecurity protocols and software to the highest possible level, keeping pace with the technology of today and limiting opportunities for hackers, rogue groups or nation states, and cyberterrorists to do potential harm.  The events of this past election cycle are but one example in a string of recent cyberattacks aimed at weakening our country.  We need to encrypt sensitive government data to the highest possible level, help vital non-governmental organizations and utilities maintain adequate defenses, and assign more human resources to fully executing and strengthening the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 and the Cybersecurity National Action Plan outlined in 2016 by President Obama.
