At Washington Post Live's 2013 Cybersecurity Summit, Microsoft’s Craig Mundie cites a health space analogy for what companies and government bodies need in a vulnerable cyber world. He says we need a World Health Organization equivalent for networks. ”This is where I think government has a role to play,” Mundie says. “If all governments are late to the party, you do have the tendency for the private sector to come forward. In the U.S., it’s vigilantism, it’s illegal to chase bad guys up the wire and certainly illegal to shoot back."
