White House Announces National Cybersecurity Strategy

On September 20, the White House released the National Cyber Strategy of the United States intended to strengthen America’s cybersecurity capabilities and secure the United States from cyber threats. The strategy details the actions the Administration will take to:

• Defend the homeland by protecting networks, systems, functions, and data;
• Promote American prosperity by nurturing a secure, thriving digital economy and fostering strong domestic innovation;
• Preserve peace and security by strengthening the ability of the United States — in concert with allies and partners — to deter and, if necessary, punish those who use cyber tools for malicious purposes; and
• Expand American influence abroad to extend the key tenets of an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure Internet.
