Jonathan Katz, the newly appointed director of the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2), and Eric Chapman, deputy director, were quoted in an article on Mashable.

Katz and Chapman talk about the importance for the public to understand the pressing need for cybersecurity to fend off digital attacks. To reduce the risk of falling prey to such assaults, they emphasize that it is crucial for private companies to adopt uniform cybersecurity standards and procedures.
