In cyberspace, the list of critical targets is long: electrical grids, railways, banking systems, stock exchanges and retailers. Billions of dollars are being spent on cybersecurity yet costly cyber intrusions are only growing. Who will protect the systems that we all depend on – and how?

Rep. Mike Rogers, Alejandro Mayorkas of the Department of Homeland Security and DARPA director Arati Prabhakar joined experts Oct. 1 for conversations with The Washington Post on the the next generation of cyber defense.
