“The benefits to society and our economies are potentially enormous, but this also means that number of targets for hackers is only getting larger.It is up to all of us –from across industry, academia, and government – to work together to combat cyber threats,” also said Andrews according to a press release.

He added that the digital environment is an integral part of the activities of the government and the industry as well as of our daily lives.
