There can be few higher priorities than a strong cybersecurity program that ensures American safety. Power grids, communications networks, and transportation systems all work on a digital backbone which simultaneously gives us great scale and efficiency but also great vulnerability. Cyber terrorists and hostile governments see these as soft targets that can wreak havoc on our safety, our economy, and our quality of life. In Washington, I will fight to modernize our technology infrastructure and ensure that America’s best and brightest tech minds are put to work to safeguard our interests.
