Critical infrastructure is a prime target for cyberattacks and is thus a major national security concern. However, most of the nation’s critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector. As such, the federal government must work hand-in-hand with these private entities to ensure our collective security.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), formed in 2018, is a major proactive step to that end. CISA has become a powerful partner for critical infrastructure operators in the face of burgeoning cyber threats and a testament to the efficacy of public-private partnerships.
However, the partnership should not end there. NTSC supports 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 of these elements are necessary to protect the security of our shared critical infrastructure. Neither the private sector nor the government can ensure complete security alone.
