On Jan. 20, during his State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama highlighted the need to enact cybersecurity legislation in the near term. As he framed the issue:

“No foreign nation, no hacker, should be able to shut down our networks, steal our trade secrets or invade the privacy of American families, especially our kids. We are making sure our government integrates intelligence to combat cyberthreats, just as we have done to combat terrorism. And tonight, I urge this Congress to finally pass the legislation we need to better meet the evolving threat of cyberattacks, combat identity theft and protect our children’s information. If we don’t act, we’ll leave our nation and our economy vulnerable. If we do, we can continue to protect the technologies that have unleashed untold opportunities for people around the globe.”

The White House later previewed some of its cybersecurity strategy and legislative proposals. More details will be coming soon. Additionally, FBI Director James Comey highlighted “ a five-point strategy” to address cybersecurity. On Feb. 10, a new Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center was announced by White House officials as part of an effort to strengthen our national cyber defenses. On Feb. 13, Stanford hosted the White House Cybersecurity Summit, which focused on a host of cybersecurity issues.

There are many facets to cybersecurity. This article highlights five key issues for consideration.
