U.S. Cybersecurity Policy and the Role of U.S. CYBERCOM

Description

The CSIS (Center for Strategic and International Studies) is a public policy research institution. Researchers conduct their own studies and are also recruited to conduct research for various security companies. They presented "U.S. Cybersecurity Policy and the Role of U.S. Cybercom" as part of their Cybersecurity Policy Debate Series in Washington D.C. 

The U.S. Cyber Command is run through the Department of Defense. It was implemented in May 2011 with General Keith Alexander as the commander. During the policy debate series, General Alexander explains that cyber threats are growing. He emphasizes that cybersecurity will only work as a "team sport." Therefore, the U.S. Cyber Command plans to secure the United States against cyber threats through collaboration with other government departments, military, academia, corporations and non-profit organizations. 

The U.S. Cyber Command exists solely to prevent cyber threats and diminish damage of current attacks. The CSIS is the leading research institution dedicated to studying cyber issues and influencing policy. Together, the U.S. Cyber Command and CSIS will play a role in shaping future policies and laws. 

General Keith Alexander's speech is used in the Concerned Citizen Directory and Policymaker Directory. He provides cyberwar examples, discusses the command's strategies and offers a comprehensive view of contemporary cyber issues.
