Arriving again on New York Ave. 1100 NW to be exact. I love this city. In Washington old man winter has arrived.
The topic of the day is Cybersecurity legislation and privacy. This is a touchy subject for all because it is a very delicate balance of our constitutional rights as US citizens and the very freedom our troops fight for on the battlefields to ensure the security and livelihood of the land of the free.
Those of us who have been without power for more than 3 days or had the Verizon recording repeating “all circuits are busy” when you are trying to communicate with someone you love in a crisis or sitting in the HOV lanes dead stop and all lanes are blocked. The feeling of no control is a constant reminder of how fortunate we are…everyday.
Many generations have physically fought for the comfort of our world we call America. To encourage information sharing between public and private companies so we can better assess the threats to stay ahead of our adversaries is today’s battleground. To allow our country to manage our cyber risk at all times.
It seems a small price to pay.
