Strengthening the Public-Private Partnership

Strengthening the Public-Private Partnership

The US has great need for a comprehensive approach toward protecting our cyberspace—and the only way we’re going to achieve this comprehensive approach is through a partnership between the public and private sector. Such a partnership helps strengthen national security, the US economy, and cybersecurity standards that help protect the government, businesses, and individuals.

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—working together on tasks impossible to solve alone such as deterring nation state attacks or elevating the nation’s investment in quantum computing and AI.

The NTSC has taken actions to strengthen the public-private partnership by bringing together public and private sector stakeholders during events, meeting with government stakeholders (such as leadership at CISA) to encourage more partnering with the private sector, and meeting with members of Congress to promote the creation of legislation that assists with the public-private partnership—such as the Cybersecurity Advisory Committee Authorization Act of 2019 (H.R. 1975) and the companion Senate bill, the Cybersecurity Advisory Committee Authorization Act of 2020, both of which the NTSC vigorously supports.
