In our digitally interconnected world, cybercrimes increasingly threaten our day-to-day lives. Ransomware attacks and data breaches have become persistent and pervasive risks for anyone and anything connected to the internet with our critical infrastructure and consumers primary targets. While many have embraced the ubiquity of digital technologies, public policy has been much slower to respond. In this panel we explore the risks and vulnerabilities of this digital policy gap and discuss what solutions might be explored to protect the public from cybercrimes. We will be joined by Leonard Bailey (Department of Justice), Victoria E. Beckman (Microsoft), Aunshul Rege (Temple University Department of Criminal Justice), and moderator Daniel Eliot (National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence).
