He reported: «By virtue of its responsibility, the bureau should have seen to it that the extent of the problem that it was dealing with was defined when it comes to civilian sector cybersecurity; that the fields and entities that needed to be protected be determined; and [that it be decided] how this needed to be addressed and what resources would be invested».
