From Tommy Ross: “Simply put, our global internet ecosystem is stronger when we work together to defend it. If countries and regions pursue country-specific standards, we will engender a series of constrained local responses to a truly global — and growing — threat. We will cede the advantage to attackers who can exploit vulnerabilities arising when product development is driven by compliance with myriad national standards instead of a search for best practices proven to be effective on a global basis.”
