Cybersecurity and Corporate America

The Obama Administration is taking steps to address/focus on cyber attacks on critical US infrastructure — the cyber identity theft, economic espionage, and sabotage activities that President Obama has called "real threats to our security and our economy." These measures represent the Administration’s next steps in attempting to organize an in-depth defense of key assets, and the Federal Government is inviting the private sector to help shape and support this effort. Businesses with a proactive approach to cybersecurity may find opportunities in recent measures the Administration has announced.

Our brief outlines how companies seize an opportunity to shape their future cybersecurity environment in three critical areas; expanding public-private information sharing, identifying and prioritizing US critical infrastructure, and building a cybersecurity framework.
