How Do We Combat Cybercrime?

The biggest cyberattack to date unfolded like a Hollywood thriller. Exploiting a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows stolen from the NSA, hackers—possibly linked to North Korea—crippled more than 200,000 computers at government agencies and businesses with the "WannaCry" ransomware.

Microsoft’s president called for a Digital Geneva Convention, saying that 74% of companies expect to be hacked each year and the economic cost of cybercrime is expected to hit $3 trillion by 2020.

Wired seconded the call, pointing to models of successful international technical accords on everything from telegraph to satellites.
