"What Do We Owe One Another In Cybersecurity?"

As the cybersecurity ecosystem evolves, we understand more about how interconnected we are: the ripple effects from breaches, the fact that supply chains aren't discrete lines but rather a web, and that mapping our vulnerabilities is harder than we thought. In this session, Wendy Nather will talk about the concept of civic duty on the Internet — not just sporadic charity efforts or "nice to have" information sharing, but the social norms and obligations we should face together if we want a sustainable world of technology. Shared risk requires shared defense.
