Abstract:

Most sectors providing the underpinnings of modern society have come to critically rely on computers and computer networks to function properly. These sectors include public health, finance and banking, business and retail, media and telecommunications, national defense, along with more fundamental critical infrastructure such as electrical power, water utilities, and food distribution. Our deep reliance on these sectors makes them particularly attractive targets for attack. Adversaries can leverage computer or network vulnerabilities to interfere with the proper functioning of American society.
