Gen. Dale Meyerrose

During the recent Global Cybersecurity Policy conference, Gen. Dale Meyerrose of Harris Corporation, called on the technical community to become more involved in educating the general public about security issues in cyberspace. Despite the increasing use of cyberspace in our daily functions, how we think about security in cyberspace has not significantly changed, Meyerrose said.

“During the past decade, cyberspace access and use have become ubiquitous assets in our society, but the way that we discuss cyber hasn’t changed,” he said. “The general user has become more knowledgeable about cyberspace, but is still not fully aware of its dangers. Every individual who touches cyberspace is a user, consumer, threat, vulnerability, defender and attacker at the same time- irrespective of intent of capability.”

Meyerrose called for a change to the dialogue to better inform the public on the transnational nature of cyberspace.

“First, information-on-demand capabilities created new expectations about the availability of information,” Gen. Meyerrose explained. “Browsers and data search engines, while not new, soared in importance. Second, the social networking phenomenon meant that workers often had more capable and agile information technology at home than they had in the office. In turn, they have become dissatisfied with the limitations of workplace networks, and often risk bypassing or ignoring security tools such as virus protectors and spam filters to get the information they seek. As technologists, we must change the cyber dialogue to make consumers aware that cyber has no territorial boundaries. There is no inside and outside of the office building or complex. Cyber and network security are intertwined with basic information sharing and computing.”
