The National Cybersecurity Strategy, released by the administration last fall, has been billed as the country’s first comprehensive cyber protection initiative in 15 years. Within months of NCS’s release, a distributed-denial-of-service cyberattack against a West Coast utility became the first such event to disrupt a utility’s electrical system operations, once again calling into question the security of the country’s critical infrastructure. In this keynote address, learn what the administration is doing to implement NCS and stay ahead of threats to our critical interests.
