April 14, 2023
Recently, the Biden administration released its much anticipated National Cybersecurity Strategy. Founded on five pillars - defend critical infrastructure, disrupt and dismantle threat actors, shape market forces to drive security and resilience, invest in a resilient future, and forge international partnerships to pursue shared goals - the strategy builds on the 2018 National Cyber Strategy issued by the Trump administration, as well as several other national security memorandums and Executive Order 14028.
Though the five pillars identified in the 2023 strategy are vastly different in verbiage from the 2018 version, they are similar in intent - and they’ve been modernized to meet today’s threats and cybersecurity trends. Some of the initiatives within focus on areas that warrant much-needed national attention, and others change the national cybersecurity landscape for developers and service providers.
There is a lot to digest in the 39-page strategy, but here are a few key themes that stood out to me, as well as key takeaways for each:
We’re living in an unprecedented threat landscape, and we can only protect ourselves from bad actors if we work together. This means there must be ongoing collaboration between the private and public sectors. This is exactly what the Biden administration aims to jumpstart with its 2023 strategy, and the initiatives within will put us on the path to cybersecurity success.
