Trump Cybersecurity Dos and Don’ts

President-elect Donald Trump ran a campaign focused on national security and making America great again through economic reform. Clearly both goals should include policies and programs to bolster the nation’s cybersecurity capabilities. This shouldn’t be an abstract concept to Mr. Trump after an election cycle featuring Russian hacks and WikiLeaks posts. 

To reinforce this priority, it is also worth noting that in a pre-election survey by ESG research, 49% of cybersecurity professionals said that cybersecurity is a critical issue and should be the top national security priority for the next President while 45% said cybersecurity is a very important issue and should be one of the top national security priorities for the next President. If those citizens on the front-line see cybersecurity as a major priority, this should speak volumes to the President-elect.
