In welcoming attendees to TechNet Land Forces East today, Sen. Barbara Mikulski emphasized that the military and civilian agencies represented at the conference must continue their work to build up the thin cybersecurity shield, and that citizens and leaders alike must disabuse themselves of the notion that cyberattacks are something that will happen in the future.
