Why are cybersecurity alliances being formed?

In a recent article published in the Web Writer Spotlight, Cathy Trimidal argues that even though the risk of cyber-attacks has steadily risen, often times governments haven’t taken the necessary actions to protect their citizens. This lack of trust between companies and policy makers, she writes, has led many to seek alternative solutions, namely entering various cyber alliances such as the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA). She discusses the advantages of companies being a part of these larger alliances, in which information sharing can lead not only to heightened security for individual companies but to increased security in the digital world for us all.
