On March 2, President Joe Biden’s administration issued its National Cybersecurity Strategy to achieve the full benefits of a secure digital ecosystem for all Americans. This National Cybersecurity Strategy calls for two fundamental shifts – rebalancing responsibility for the cyber defense electronically, and reorganizing incentives in favor of long-term investments. The United States’ commitment to international partnerships on cyber issues remains strong. The National Cybersecurity Strategy emphasizes working with our allies and partners to build a defensible, resilient, and value-compliant digital ecosystem.”
