Who Should Safeguard Our Data?

So much of who we are and what defines us—as individuals, businesses, and organizations—is captured in data that resides in the cloud. A few lines of code can dismantle business, shut down infrastructure, and reveal critical personal details. It’s widely accepted that code moves faster than law, so how do we protect the intangible? What is the government’s role in keeping our data safe? What happens when our data is stored on servers beyond our borders? Should the government be the true safeguard of our data, or should security solutions be driven by the private sector? Are we to the point that the Internet should be designated critical infrastructure?
