At Stanford University’s Memorial Hall on Feb. 13, leaders of state and industry came together to discuss the growing trend of cybercrime and to make an announcement. At the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection, President Barack Obama announced a plan that will allow companies and the government to share information that would help fight attacks like the one against Sony last year.
“Government cannot do this alone,” Obama said. “The fact is, the private sector cannot do this alone either, as government has the latest information on threats. Today I’m once again calling on Congress to come together and get this done.”
