Rapidly evolving technology allows governments and businesses to elevate our collective well-being in ways we could not have imagined just decades ago. Data is now a resource that governments and businesses alike can mine to address the world’s needs with greater efficiency, accuracy, and flexibility. But evolving technology and advanced data analytics also come with risk. New digital capabilities also create new means for nefarious actors to infiltrate the complex technological systems at the heart of nearly all of our daily activities. Just as new digital tools emerge to offer unique goods and services, new tools allow wrongdoers to invade our privacy, manipulate data, and undermine our infrastructure systems. New technological frontiers also create a vast array of potential targets for crime and mischief, as both businesses and criminals recognize the value of data and the containers, both physical and digital, in which it resides.
