As a former U.S. Army colonel and NSA commander, Eric Toler knows a thing or two about the volatility of the internet. Digital technology now touches almost every aspect of our lives — from personal finance to the electrical grid — and it’s people like Toler who understand just how vulnerable we are to its myriad weaknesses.

“[We’re] seeing an increase in the competency and capability of criminals, and the nexus between criminal organizations and nation states that want to do the U.S. and our allies harm,” said Toler, who now works as Executive Director of the Georgia Cyber Center, a state-owned education and training facility for private- and public-sector cybersecurity professionals in Augusta, GA.
