Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency


This document began in August 2007 as a result of damaging attacks in cyberspace against the United States. A group of experienced individuals in government and cybersecurity identified recommendations that the next administration could implement quickly to improve the nation's cybersecurity. This report also includes longer-term recommendations that are critical to the nation's future cyber objectives.

In 2007, CSIS (Center for International and Strategic Studies) recognized that cyber is now a major United States' security problem. In order to address cybersecurity, personal privacies and liberties must be respected and a national security strategy should be implemented in the future. The United States' government did implement a national security strategy in 2010. The Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative was written during the Bush administration, and was expanded on at the beginning of the Obama administration with the Cyberspace Policy Review.
