Unto the Breach: Cyber Policy Under Biden
Jan 20, 2021 Season 1 Episode 37
Firewalls.com/Caitlin Chin, Policy Analyst

As now President Biden enters office, his administration faces a variety of major issues, not only related to the pandemic, but also to cybersecurity and the online world. The continually developing SolarWinds supply chain attack that led to breaches of multiple federal agencies is still making headlines. And data privacy concerns, ransomware, Section 230, and net neutrality all count themselves as significant as well.

How will the new administration (and Congress) address them and where are they on the priority list? Washington D.C.-based policy analyst Caitlin Chin answers those questions and more. We go deeper into the government breach and what made this one different, then move into what policymakers could do when it comes to cybersecurity and regulations of social media and internet access in the next 4 years.
