5: Cybersecurity

Make cybersecurity one of our primary areas of focus.

Other Information:

CSIS's Technology and Public Policy Program has made cybersecurity one of its primary areas of focus over the past several years. The Information Age has transformed America's national and economic security. America's cyber infrastructure empowers us and also provides opportunity to those who seek to do us harm. When President Obama announced a new comprehensive approach to securing America's digital infrastructure, he made a point of thanking CSIS's Bipartisan Commission on Cybersecurity for pointing the way ahead. Senior U.S. government officials, members of Congress, industry heads, and international experts look to CSIS as a trusted venue to discuss cyber policy. CSIS's Cybersecurity Dinner Series, made possible by Northrop Grumman and CSIS's Cybersecurity Speaker Series, made possible by AT&T, are two such forums for cyber policy discourse. For example, General Keith Alexander (pictured on opposite page), America's first Cyber Commander, gave his first public address at CSIS. CSIS has also established a Cybersecurity Podcast Series that features candid interviews with leaders and experts in the field.
