In today s global cybersecurity environment, U.S. federal agencies and private sector organizations are engaged in national cyber defense actions designed to protect against intrusion from state and non-state actors, foreign militaries, organized crime, and sophisticated hackers attempting to commit malicious activity or espionage against America s essential networks. The purpose of this paper, which concentrates in US cybersecurity defense as a strategic way of supporting America s enduring national security interests, is threefold. To define cybersecurity defense in a paradigm that is universally acceptable within the American construct to identify and discuss U.S. cybersecurity defense strategies by examining the progression of America s cybersecurity defense policies and the subsequent Federal agency roles which have developed within the U.S. government configuration and provides a recommendation to improve America s national cybersecurity defense posture by implementing public-private partnership information sharing programs for critical network infrastructure security within the Defense Industrial Base DIB sector.
