A few weeks ago, I completed a project for the National Law Journal’s Trailblazers series where I had the opportunity to interview 50 leading experts in cybersecurity and cyber law. I asked each trailblazer to talk for a few minutes about what they expect to see in the future. Most of the responses were as expected: The number-one answer by far was “more,” such as more data, more breaches, more concern, more regulation, and more litigation. Many of them also spoke about cooperation among government agencies (both domestic and international) and how important the issue has become to senior management and boards of directors.
