"It is important that the messages of this new century not be drowned out by a combination of senseless abuse and criminal misbehavior,” Corbett said. "Just as a superhighway can carry essential goods to market, along with criminals fleeing the scene of the crime, the Internet is much in need of traffic cops.”
The forum, held at Heinz Field, brought together a variety of government and industry officials sharing insight into how such a partnership in the fight against cybercrime will help protect global, state and local economic interests.
"We can’t afford to allow the bad guys to flee across national boundaries. If cyber-security is to mean anything, it must be an international effort,” Corbett said. "An email doesn’t stop at the border to clear customs. A financial transaction can’t pause to be searched. Things now move instantly, meaning we need to be on guard against those who would steal or terrorize at the same rate.”
