What once was the fictional subject of many a spy film and other political thriller is now the all-too familiar occurrence of massive data breaches and cybersecurity attacks on systems across the public and private commercial sectors. Headline-grabbing incidents — such as Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks, Edward Snowden’s involvement in leaking classified NSA information, or countless security breaches of private citizens’ information across financial, commercial, and retail systems — create uncertainty and wreak havoc for those responsible for data security and integrity across these complex technical infrastructures.
