2CYBER POLICIES OF THE UNITED STATESThe United States government has no greater responsibility than protecting theAmerican people. This does not mean just protecting our borders (our obligations donot end at our borders), it goes a long way into far much other elements includingPreventing the Spread and Use of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Combating thePersistent Threat of Terrorism, Confronting Climate Change and most importantlyensuring that all government and citizen data whether public or private is kept secureat all times (Mead,2018).The Internet has turned into a center point of individual, political and businessaction, and also an essentially imperative medium for money related and scholarlytransactions. It should come as nothing unexpected, subsequently, that criminalenthusiasm for the Internet has grown accordingly.
