Countries that engage in cyber attacks should face consequences and international condemnation, said Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“In an interconnected world, an attack on one nation’s networks can be an attack on all,” she said in a Washington speech. “By reinforcing that message, we can create norms of behavior among states and encourage respect for the global networked commons.”

Clinton’s comments came during a talk where she unveiled a $15 million effort to help more young people, women and citizens groups in other countries communicate on the Web.

“Given the magnitude of the challenges we’re facing, we need people around the world to pool their knowledge and creativity to help rebuild the global economy, protect our environment, defeat violent extremism and build a future in which every human being can realize their God-given potential,” she said.
