"It has now reached the critical stage where the U.S. federal government has to take a leadership role, in collaboration with businesses and academia, in defining a digital risk response continuum, in shifting our national culture to be more security focused, in establishing a platform for collaborative action and response, and in more effectively supporting research efforts against this modern digital plague."Please Note: Extended description available upon request.
