WASHINGTON – John Miller, ITI’s vice president of global policy and law, released the following statement about the Trump Administration’s widely anticipated new report addressing botnets and other automated threats to the digital economy.

“With each passing day, cybersecurity is cemented as a priority issue for government and industry alike. This report is a promising step in addressing the pernicious and growing cybersecurity threat of botnets. We appreciate the administration’s work on this report and their attention to this issue. Successfully combatting botnets and bolstering cybersecurity across the global digital economy will only happen if industry and government work together. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves and working with government and ICT partners to implement the recommendations in the report.”

Recently, the Council to Secure the Digital Economy, a group made up of prominent tech and telecom companies and co-led by ITI, announced its 2018 priorities, which include developing and promoting an international guide to anti-botnet baseline security practices for key segments within the ICT sector.
