How to tighten cybersecurity

Recommendations for how the government can better prepare for and combat

cyberattacks:

n Refer to the security threat to information systems as information warfare,

not cyberterrorism.

n Offer generous rewards to those who provide information about cybercrimes.

n Understand that defense security measures are more workable than

offensive measures.

n Open up more discussions about cyberdefenses to become better prepared.
