Cyberspace often looks like the Wild West. Hackers attack at will, take control of territory (botnets), and generally act with impunity. Unfortunately, there is much more at risk in cyberspace than in a small Wild West town. Important parts of our national infrastructure can be severely damaged and significant portions of our national wealth can be stolen or degraded. In this talk I will give an overview of the problems we face and highlight steps that can and have been taken to address them.
