Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert was interviewed by Christian Science Monitor on cybersecurity. The article titled, Cyber Security Awakening in 2013: How vulnerable to attack is US now? discussed how businesses, governments, and individuals are seeking better cyber security measures as cyberattacks mount in the US.

As ominous as the dark side of cyberspace may be, our collective reactions to it are just as ominous — and can easily become the darkest driving force of them all should we over-react, writes Deibert in a recent research piece quoted in the article.
