Executive Summary and Acknowledgments

Social issues, the economy, public policy, human issues: whichever way one looks at it, and whatever one calls it (IT security, telecom security), cybersecurity touches on the security of the digital and cultural wealth of people, organizations and countries. The challenges involved are complex, and meeting them requires that there be the political will to devise and implement a strategy for the development of digital infrastructures and services which includes a coherent, effective, verifiable and manageable cybersecurity strategy.
