Internet & Cybersecurity

Internet & Cybersecurity

The internet has become an essential tool for modern life. Access to data is necessary for things such as banking, education, job seeking, managing medical care and more. We need net neutrality protected and affordable internet service provided for those who are less fortunate. This can be accomplished by providing tax credits or supplementary payments. We must not allow our children to fall behind in their education because of a lack of access to the internet. We need to deliver broadband access in rural areas funded by public-private partnerships and avoid regulation that favors the large conglomerates that provide internet access.

We are in the midst of a kind of warfare we have never seen. With the stroke of a key, state-sponsored hackers can take down the electric grid, halt the banking system and shut down computers. The technology gets more sophisticated by the day and we must keep up. We must mobilize forces to combat foreign and domestic operations. We must hold companies responsible for not sufficiently working to protect their clients’ data and we must shore up our defenses in key areas of infrastructure to prevent catastrophic and lasting damage.
