The threat posed by hackers to companies is not confined to just the private sector.
According to the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), cybersecurity is an area of public concern that has “continued to grow rapidly.”
In fact, DHS estimates that the threat of a cyberattack could cost the United States $6.8 trillion by 2020, a figure that has grown every year since 2012.
The threat is becoming a significant concern to governments and companies, as it could affect not only the ability of businesses to operate, but the way in which individuals, governments, and businesses interact.
In addition to being the target of hacks, companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and Twitter’s parent company Alphabet have all been hit by attacks in the past year.
According the cybersecurity community, many of these attacks were either directed at companies themselves or individuals with whom they worked.
A 2016 study by the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), found that hackers were able to infiltrate the networks of some 300 large US companies.
This was done by exploiting a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and an exploit in an Android app called AdBusters.
The researchers say that more attacks could be on the way.
A cyberattack on a US company could have a catastrophic impact on its operations and the lives of its employees.
It is no surprise that this issue has been brought up by US lawmakers in recent months.
Earlier this month, Congress passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), a bill that would require companies and agencies to share information about cybersecurity threats.
The bill is the result of a long-standing bipartisan consensus that companies must be transparent about their security efforts and that companies should have access to the tools and information they need to protect themselves.
While these laws have the potential to improve cybersecurity, the reality is that the process is still a work in progress.
The process of creating new legislation is a slow and arduous process, with Congress often taking weeks to work through multiple amendments, amendments to existing bills, and a variety of other amendments to a bill.
Many of the proposals for cybersecurity legislation have been met with fierce opposition from both Republicans and Democrats.
The latest bill that has been discussed by both parties in Congress is a version of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) that has already been rejected by the Senate and the House of Representatives.
However, it has been proposed in the House as part of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CSISPA), which has been reintroduced into the House and Senate this month.
The SOPA bill would have required online copyright holders to obtain warrants from government agencies before they would be able to seize the websites that host infringing content.
This legislation has been repeatedly opposed by companies and organizations that believe it will hurt the internet.
In its place, a bill called SOPA 2.0 would have created a court-ordered process for companies and individuals to request warrants to search the internet, similar to the process used by the FBI and other agencies to obtain a search warrant.
Both proposals would have given online companies more information about how they can fight online copyright infringement, but they would have left the issue up to companies to decide if they want to take legal action against copyright infringers.
Although SOPA is unlikely to pass, the debate over cybersecurity continues to play out in the public eye, especially on social media.
Some politicians have tried to make the issue a partisan issue, citing a lack of public outrage over the attack on the US embassy in Egypt and the recent attacks on the Boston Marathon.
In a statement to Newsweek, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said: “I have been a strong supporter of cybersecurity legislation for years and it is one of my top priorities to get legislation passed.
The American people should be informed about the cybersecurity threats facing our country and the fact that the U.S. has not had a major cyberattack since the 1970s.
It should be clear to everyone that we must strengthen our defenses against cyber attacks.
I am disappointed that Congress has chosen to put politics ahead of cybersecurity and I look forward to working with both parties to pass cybersecurity legislation.”
