Abstract:

A decade into the 21st Century, the United States must transition its attention from national security problems that exist in the physical world to security challenges in cyberspace. Assaults on American critical infrastructure, government and defense networks, corporate business networks, and financial networks will continue to grow as adversaries expand their cyber capabilities to achieve their goals. To effectively counter these expanding cyber threats, the U.S. Government must reassess, reorganize, and resource its agencies and organizations to defeat adversaries in cyberspace. This paper will discuss the strategic importance of addressing the growing cyber threats facing the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, corporate America, allies, partners, and U.S. citizens as they increase their reliance on cyberspace to conduct professional and personal business. The paper concludes with strategic recommendations for increasing U.S. capability to deal with this evolving threat.
