Friday Sync-Up: Securing Cyber Infrastructure

Every Friday, I present a topic or question for our merry band of thinkers, leaders, and pirates to discuss in an open thread. Here is this week’s conversation starter:

President Biden is rolling out a massive $2 trillion “infrastructure plan.” The plan includes at least $100 billion for a variety of infrastructure priorities, including modernizing the electric power grid and protecting it from cyber threats.

Question: Should the US government fund, or help fund, making critical infrastructure more cyber resilient — even though more than 70% of this infrastructure is privately owned?
