“The federal government can’t meet this challenge alone,” Biden said. “You have the power, the capacity and the responsibility, I believe, to raise the bar on cybersecurity.”

The guest list included Amazon’s Andy Jassy, Apple’s Tim Cook, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Google’s Sundar Pichai and IBM’s Arvind Krishna.

Cybersecurity rises to the top of Biden’s agenda

It seems that cybersecuirty has made its way to the top of Biden’s agenda, likely prompted by a series of high-profile cyber attacks over the course of this year.

This comes after the massive Colonial Pipeline attack, which resulted in a $4.4 million ransom payout to the hackers.

Other noteworthy recent attacks on US companies include the Russia REvil gang hack and the attack on JBS, the world’s largest meat supplier.

“We have a lot of work to do,” Biden said.
