Critical Infrastructure

Critical Infrastructure

With efforts from entities such as US Cyber Command and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the government has taken a more proactive approach to cyber defense. Yet, the majority of the nation’s critical infrastructure is owned by the private sector—which is why CISA and US Cyber Command have focused on protecting it more as part of their evolving missions.

But to protect critical infrastructure requires a strong public-private partnership. We need improved cyber threat intelligence sharing, more dialogue between the public and private sectors, and a positive relationship between law enforcement and the private sector—all working together on tasks impossible to solve alone such as deterring nation state attacks on critical infrastructure.

The NTSC supports dialogue and partnerships between federal government entities (such as CISA) and the private sector cybersecurity community.
