Interesting piece at TechCrunch by Ben FitzGerald of the Center for a New American Security (a grantee of our Cyber Initiative), on the importance of collaboration across sectors and disciplines for real cybersecurity:
Government outreach efforts often talk about collaboration and working together but usually in a vague, aspirational, kumbaya kind of way. However, for cybersecurity the need for collaboration is pragmatic and pressing.
The ubiquity and power of information technology means that the biggest security risks exist at the intersection of disciplines and communities. Collaboration is the only way to mitigate these risks.
An intersectional perspective allows us to better understand why certain cyber attacks occur and are so damaging.
