Remarks by President Biden on Collectively Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity AUGUST 25, 2021
THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you all for being here to discuss the core national security challenge we’re facing, the American people are facing, and — and our economy is facing with cybersecurity.
We’ve seen time and again how the technologies we rely on — from our cell phones to pipelines, to the electric grid — can become targets of ha- — hackers and criminals.
At the same time, our skilled cybersecurity workforce has not grown fast enough to keep pace. We’re about — the estimates many of you have given us and we’ve concluded are — on our own — about a half a million cybersecurity jobs remain unfilled.
That’s a challenge, but it also is a real opportunity. And I’ve made it — this a priority for my administration from the outset. Read more.
2020 Democratic Party Platform
2020 Democratic Party Platform: “America is an idea—one that has endured and evolved through war and depression, prevailed over fascism and communism, and radiated hope to far distant corners of the earth. Americans believe that diversity is our greatest strength. That protest is among the highest forms of patriotism. That our fates and fortunes are bound to rise and fall together. That even when we fall short of our highest ideals, we never stop trying to build a more perfect union. When the American people go to the polls this fall, we will be choosing more than a candidate. Character is on the ballot in this election. The character of our President, yes, but more than that: the character of our democracy, our society, and our leadership in the world.” READ MORE
DCDP Endorses Contract For Rural & Working America
On Saturday, August 8, 2020 the Executive Committee of the Daviess County Democratic Party voted to endorse the Contract for Rural and Working America. Linderman introduces the contract: “For far too long, rural America has been abandoned, by government and by business. This has left large parts of the country devastated – with not nearly enough good paying jobs, insufficient health care, obstacles to education and opportunity, and a general feeling of being left behind. This is why I helped create “The Contract For Rural & Working America”, a set of aspirational goals for government to apply to the very specific needs of rural and working America. And, as you read this collection of proposals, understand that implementing these will lead to more opportunity and economic security for the rest of America as well.” Read more
