Can the U.S. Shore Up its National Cybersecurity Defenses?


In an era where cyber threats loom larger and more sophisticated, the urgency to bolster national cybersecurity defenses has never been more critical. With government watchdogs highlighting gaps in performance measures and cost assessments, and recent breaches underscoring vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, the stakes are high. How can the U.S. align its cybersecurity strategies across various stakeholders to effectively counter the evolving threat landscape?

  2. Evolving Cyber Threat Landscape: The panelists discuss how digitalization, cloud computing, and Industry 4.0 are expanding the cybersecurity attack surface.
  3. Strategies for Improvement: The conversation covers the need for national metrics, the importance of regulatory oversight, and the role of frameworks like NIST and Zero Trust in setting cybersecurity standards.
