As the National Governors Association summer meeting convened in Providence this month, more than 30 governors from around the country—joined by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence—placed special attention on one issue in particular: cybersecurity. That can’t be a surprise to anyone. We now know that data theft played a role in the 2016 Presidential election. We also know that nearly two-thirds of federal agencies have suffered a data breach, while more than 95 percent of federal agencies consider themselves vulnerable to a breach, according to a report from the cybersecurity firm Thales. And of course, we know that cybersecurity incidents are having a major impact on commerce.
