Due to the complexity of cyberspace and the diversity of threats that operate in the new domain, current US cyber strategy has not proven effective. This paper dissects the cyber threat landscape and how advanced threats operate in order to devise an effective, adaptive strategy for US cybersecurity. US cybersecurity strategy must be threat-focused and threat-aware with capabilities built to evolve as threats evolve. Threat agnostic strategy that simply builds better perimeter defenses around victim networks is only part of what is needed to combat threats.
