“The expanding attack surface enabled by technology innovations such as cloud computing and IoT devices, a global shortage of cyber-security talent, and regulatory pressures continue to be significant drivers of cyber-threats. The pace of these changes is unprecedented, resulting in a critical tipping point as the impact of cyber-attacks are felt well beyond their intended victims in personal, political, and business consequences. Going forward, the need for accountability at multiple levels is urgent and real affecting vendors, governments, and consumers alike. Without swift action, there is a real risk of disrupting the progress of the global digital economy.”
