In the CFA Institute Conference Proceedings Quarterly, EWI President John Mroz addresses the need to create strategies to make cyberspace more secure.
Responding to increased levels of cyber risks, governments are now taking more interest in cybersecurity policy, Mroz points out. But he argues that more cooperation and sharing of information between government and the private sector will allow for a faster response to threats than government policies can provide on their own.
"Cybersecurity is a critical issue that affects everyone," Mroz notes. "Both the United States and the European Union recognize that people are not really free if they are not safe."
