Bulletin of Atomic Scientists: What would US citizens, or citizens of any Western democracy, have to actually change in their lives to be properly defended against the risk of major cyberattack?
David Sanger: Before we get to what they would have to change in their lives, they have to debate intelligently what it is we’re trying to do.
Suppose you and I were to sit down over a beer and put together a list of the kinds of civilian-related systems we think should be off limits to state-run cyberattacks.
We come up with: Election systems, the electrical grid, anything that gets in the way of emergency services. Anything that would affect hospitals and nursing homes, homeless shelters, the most vulnerable.
Then we’d say, “Okay, let’s get the United States to come out and negotiate this internationally.”
