Praise

“Hunker makes a compelling argument to show that ‘a strong hand is needed’ to ensure that the Internet is made more secure as it continues to meet the expanding needs of business, research institutions, government and consumers. A new central global authority could put into place effective regulations to ensure that ISPs, software designers and users themselves are held responsible for abuses and threats to security in the online community.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Until public policy steps in to shape Internet security, the World Wide Web could basically go up in flames at any moment….We have to act now. Hunker offers us his suggestions for a new ‘social contract,’ in which cyber security is regarded as a public good, much as health is.”
— Globe and Mail
