NextGov has a nice summary article on President Obama's cybersecurity legacy. [Full disclosure: I was interviewed for and quoted in the article]. Here is the intro:

That included imposing sanctions against Russia and North Korea and indicting government-linked hackers from China and Iran. But, in the end, cyberspace won.
