What does it mean to be secure and resilient?

How do we protect our enterprises from threats like Heartbleed?

Cyber threats on the Internet are here to stay.  The Internet forms the backbone of our modern economy and society, and is central to our way of life.  While information and communication technologies have created immense opportunity, they have also brought continued and growing malicious cyber threats.  These threats jeopardize our national security, public safety and economic wellbeing, making securing cyberspace one of the most important tasks facing the nation today.

    Addressing security is a shared responsibility, as cyber cuts across all boundaries and touches all, individuals, corporations and governments.  Specific actions range from hardening critical networks and prosecuting cybercrime to raising public awareness and training a national cybersecurity workforce.
