How should the U.S. respond to state-sponsored cyberattacks?
It’s no secret that U.S. government agencies and businesses are the target of around-the-clock cyber intrusions, many carried out by or at the behest of foreign nation-states.

Ask a random sample of Americans and you’ll likely get a very different answer than if you polled the State Department.
In a recent flash survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults commissioned by the security vendor Vormetric, a quarter of the respondents said that the United States should cut off all ties to any nation responsible for compromising U.S. government data.
