Care more about us
I think it is basic human nature to be concerned more about their personal security than that of their own country. I guess it is the tiny bit of ego etched in every person's heart that leads us to be self-centred depending on the situation. I guess at the end of the day, users need to know that the country isn't spying on their online activity after they have spied enough on the borders.

People want more
I have a feeling that people are all going to be doing their daily activities from the comfort of their home, without ever having the need to leave the house anymore. It's just a matter of time considering how quickly services that are available for order online are springing up to meet the needs and wants of the public who want things more conveniently and quickly!

Apples and Oranges really
Border security is entirely different from computer security although some similiar points exist.  The big one is that border breaks tend to happen near the border itself - we have a wide fence zone area and border towns along the border and once inland ..... threat spreads out, weakening as the feet take the intruders into towns and such as they spread around.  Now compuer security can be anywhere, all the time, no matter what.  Very broad stroke coverage.  Equidistant from North Korea to Totowa, NJ is the same as if you were just over the border at S. Korea.  No distance issue at all.  Second, border security has a limited number of physical entry points.  Computers?  OMG the list is endless and grows every day.  Physical border is a political discussion.  Computers have no right or left attached.  The system on Trump's desk (ever notice he does not have one nor does any Oval office occupan) may nor may not be the same as Pelosi's or Schumer's system.  Hell - Congress and damn near every system in the government.  State house.  Local govt.  Indiv homeowner.  THAT list is endless and non-political.,  So this is a weird comparison. 

That said, both are important for different reasons as above.  Border security people cannot steal your passwords at night--- computer theft can and does do that.   My home is generally invulnerable to immigrants unless one shows up on the doorstep.   Unlikely.    Computer security FAR less so.  I have thousands out there finding my stuff and they probably HAVE found some of it already.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
