the cyber security challengeThe challenge we face as a global community in addressing the cyber threat was the topic of discussion as APCO’s International Advisory Council (IAC) and Global Political Strategies convened its monthly meeting on January 17.

The agenda included the failure of the U.S. Congress to pass legislation on the issue, the threat to essential utility infrastructure, the balance between cyber security and collaboration, and potential nightmare scenarios.
