The government wants to work with allies on the international stages by strengthening our law enforcement to defeat the cyber threat. 3. Law enforcement must be able to develop an emergency response plan encase of an attack. They also have to develop a cyber security policy and frame work. I think the most important one of all is to strengthen our foreign relations with other countries.
