Cyber & Technology
Announcing the Cyberspace Solarium Commission
Sen. Angus King, Rep. Mike Gallagher Mon, Aug 19, 2019, 3:13 PM
The world is facing a new era of technological ubiquity. With 19.4 billion connections globally between internet-enabled devices—1.6 billion of which were added in the last year alone—cyberspace is expanding into every area of life and transforming society at an accelerated pace. And the United States is the most connected nation in the world—which brings opportunities but also increased vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, U.S. politics, laws and national security policy have not kept up with both the risks and the opportunities stemming from the dynamism of technological change.
