US Will Bring 30 Countries Together to Combat Illicit Use of Crypto, Says Biden
The White House released a statement by President Joe Biden Friday on the government’s cybersecurity efforts as October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
President Biden explained that the U.S. is “partnering closely with nations around the world” to respond to the cybersecurity threats, “including our NATO allies and G7 partners.” He added that this month:
The United States will bring together 30 countries to accelerate our cooperation in combating cybercrime, improving law enforcement collaboration, stemming the illicit use of cryptocurrency, and engaging on these issues diplomatically.
“The Federal government needs the partnership of every American and every American company in these efforts. We must lock our digital doors — by encrypting our data and using multifactor authentication, for example—and we must build technology securely by design, enabling consumers to understand the risks in the technologies they buy,” Biden continued.
