"Cybercrime impacts our businesses, healthcare, politics, and even our civil society," says Professor Charla Griffy-Brown, Chair of the CyRP. "As the economics of digital deception change we have to develop and engage in new ways to think about and pro-actively address cyber risk.  Our organizational leaders must constantly evaluate risk, protect critical assets, and build trust.
