Summary : We all have a role to play when it comes to ensuring the safety and security of the Internet, whether you are a federal employee, the CEO of a company, or a private citizen. Today’s threats require the engagement of our entire society. This shared responsibility means that we have to work with each other in ways that is often new for the government and the private sector. This means that we also have to trust each other and share information. While we have achieved some successes, we have much more work to do. Deputy Secretary Mayorkas will highlight the role that DHS plays in securing the Internet and discuss the challenges and opportunities to collaborate across our society and across borders.
