Re: Cybersecurity as an Economic Problem
Great point about the economic realities of this, @macker490. What types of economic pressures would make sense, do you think?

Russian boogeymen.
> "But we will defend the citizens of this country, and the Russians need to understand that."

I'm getting pretty tired of this setting the Russians up as the strawman.  There is slim evidence at best (see, e.g., PBS Newshour's piece here: pbs.org/newshour/rundown/does-government-know-hacked-emails/ ) that Clinton's emails were hacked/leaked by a Russian -- and even if that was the case, there's a big difference between "a Russian" and "the Russians."  Russia has a LOT of hackers.  Not all of them work for Vladimir Putin.

Moreover, while Russia has certainly been protective, to a certain degree, of its cybercriminals, China as a whole is FAR more guilty of malevolently cyber-attacking US interests.  But where is the crying out against China here?

And what about Romania -- which is home to one of the phishing/hacking capitals of the world?  Or North Korea?  Or Iran?  Or Syria?

"The Russians," however, are easy boogeymen (or, if you prefer, bogeymen).  They long have been.  It's all political posturing (1) for the campaign, and (2) about who gets to do what in the Ukraine.

Re: Cybersecurity as an Economic Problem
@macker: You are exactly right.  Indeed, CISOs and others who work with InfoSec in their organizations have seen success internally by presenting cybersecurity and data privacy as issues of bottom-line issues of product/service quality.

Accordingly, so too should we think of cybersecurity and data privacy in the public sector.

Cybersecurity as an Economic Problem
we need to view cybersecurity as an economic problem -- not as a technical one.

Bruce Schneier has also mentioned this.

as long as its cheaper to skip over security than to tie things down OEMs will continue to neglect -- yes I said NEGLECT -- security requirements -- and the customers will continue to suffer the consequences.
