Abstract:

The United States national security is at risk. State and non-state cyber actors have increasingly gained and sustained access extending beyond military targets. The exploitation of government and private networks has left the United States vulnerable to cyber attacks on critical infrastructures, theft of intellectual properties, disruption of financial institutions, and has threatened the militarys readiness and ability to operate. The secrecy of cyber threats has prevented the United States from effectively defending against those threats capable of targeting critical infrastructures. To defend and counter the cyber threat, in the interest of national security, the United States will have to engage and collaborate with the industries that maintain the nation s critical infrastructure.
