It’s been a season of harrowing news for U.S. cybersecurity. In December, we learned that a group of hackers—almost certainly Russian agents—infiltrated SolarWinds, a Texas-based IT firm, granting it access to nine federal agencies and a growing list of private companies.

Add to this the ransomware attack in May that caused the disruption of the largest energy-pipeline system serving the East Coast.
