The Hill quotes Cyber Statecraft Initiative Director Jason Healey on the successes and failures of President Obama’s cyber pitch to Silicon Valley:
“We went almost the entire day,” Healey said, before the question on many people’s mind was finally discussed: “Why are people going to want to share with a government that’s weaponizing our technologies, that’s using this stuff to further spy on others?”
“That is a really big point,” he added.
That said, most people, including Healey, agreed the White House is making progress on its cyber agenda and relationship with Silicon Valley.
“It would have been a successful message for Washington D.C.,” Healey said. “I think they could tweak their message better for Silicon Valley.”
