Networks and technologies that our world relies on should be secure for everyone.
Digital innovations can lead to productivity gains and economic growth, but they can also create a target for bad actors. Establishing strong, responsive security measures is essential to ensuring that consumers, industries, and governments alike can confidently conduct business online.
Security is a shared responsibility — from consumers to businesses and governments — and requires a commitment to adopting practices and protections that guard networks, systems and devices from foreign or domestic threats.
Tech companies support smart policies, such as expanding federal cybersecurity investments to ensure secure and resilient networks protect our critical national infrastructure, such as eletrical grids and the water supply, as well as the government’s own technology infrastructure.
Working Together to Secure Digital Infrastructure
Earlier this summer, the Biden Administration met with private sector leaders at the White House to discuss how the public and private sectors can better work together to improve the United States’ cybersecurity.
The protection of digital information and systems is a priority for both private industry and governments around the world. It is critical that the private sector have a seat at the table with the federal government when making decisions about cybersecurity policy since cybersecurity companies are working to secure the networks and devices that we all depend upon every day.
Working together, the federal government and the private sector can help create cybersecurity policies that can be adapted to rapidly emerging threats and are based on effective risk management.
