Every new technology brings with it new threats. There were no car thefts before automobiles were built. There were no airline hijackings before there were airplanes. The enormous efficiencies which have been built into broadband internet overwhelm the threats which have arisen.
The very nature of broadband allows for digital locks and passwords which make it very difficult for those threats to be realized. As broadband becomes more useful for more people to accomplish more tasks, these defenses will have to be upgraded to ward off more sophisticated attacks.
Broadband for America is dedicated to working individuals and organizations throughout the broadband supply chain to help protect the identity and data which moves along the internet every day. We will help be a center of excellence for best practices at every level of broadband use.
