For Immediate Release
May 31, 2018
Technology for Global Security (Tech4GS) welcomes the release of the much anticipated Report to the President on Enhancing the Resilience of the Internet and Communications Ecosystem Against Botnets and Other Automated, Distributed Threats. The global, multi-vector, and automated nature of botnets and distributed threats became a specific Tech4GS focus last year when we began actively developing a coalition of the willing who can meaningfully contribute to and support implementation of known best practices and capabilities to mitigate these threats. At the same time, we have actively supported the workshops convened in drafting this report - and have reached many similar conclusions, with an emphasis on the need for a clear roadmap for next steps. Tech4GS particularly supports “good neighbor” leadership by the federal government in its procurement and operational activities to convey its “resolve” in addressing this threat. We look forward to collaborating with the private sector and civil society partners along with the Federal government in developing the necessary roadmap and working towards its successful implementation.
