The White House released its 2018 National Cyber Strategy outlining the steps the federal government is taking to advance an open, secure, interoperable and reliable cyberspace.

Key goals in the strategy include:
• Strengthening cybersecurity, including securing federal networks and critical infrastructure and combatting cybercrime and improving incident reporting
• Promoting prosperity by fostering a resilient digital economy, protecting American innovation from intellectual property threats and developing a cybersecurity workforce
• Working to deter destabilizing activity in the cyberspace by promoting responsible behavior among nations, launching an international Cyber Deterrence Initiative, and exposing and countering online malign influence and information campaigns
• Promoting an open and secure internet by encouraging countries to advance internet freedom; advancing a multistakeholder model of internet governance; promoting open, interoperable, reliable and secure communications infrastructure and building international cyber capacity

“The Trump administration has taken bold steps to strengthen our security and prosperity in the face of growing threats and competition,” said Nielsen. “The critical infrastructure that Americans rely on is threatened every day by nation states, cyber criminals and hackers seeking to wreak havoc, disrupt commerce and even undermine our democratic institutions. Today, national cyber strategy — the first in 15 years — strengthens the government’s commitment to work in partnership with industry to combat those threats and secure our critical infrastructure.”
