Preserve America’s Cyber Infrastructure
Chris Carney authored the article "Preserve America’s Cyber Infrastructure" for RealClearDefense. In the article, Chris proposes a number of steps to preserve America’s cyber infrastructure against increasingly persistent and sophisticated attacks that can damage the nation by seizing "intellectual property, sensitive military capabilities and future innovations."
Chris states, "The stakes for America's cybersecurity are high. As lawmakers explore solutions to address the growing threat of cyber and ransomware attacks, they must also remain cautious of misguided proposals that could harm America's most innovative technology companies that play a vital role in bolstering our cybersecurity infrastructure."
