Almost 20 years have passed since management professor Nir Kshetri made a career-altering discovery in a small village in Nepal. An assistant professor at Kathmandu University, he’d been working as a trainer for various projects sponsored by the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, the German Technical Cooperation and the Nepal Agricultural Development Bank. The goal was to help Nepalese farmers modernize the way they go about farming and selling their commodities.

Last month hackers stole Internal Revenue Service data belonging to more than 100,000 taxpayers. This sort of attack on the IRS and other federal computer systems keeps happening – and succeeding – because the government’s cyberdefenses are not strong enough to resist.
Hacking of U.S. government electronic databases is a near-constant threat. Attacks allegedly come from criminal gangs in Russia and Central and Eastern Europe, often seeking financial information from systems like the IRS, which holds personal data on hundreds of millions of taxpayers.
