A New US National Cyber Strategy

Following the release of the new National Cyber Strategy, the United States has a fully articulated its cyber strategy. The Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD), that advises the White House on cyber issues, didn't even exist when the last national cyber security strategy was released under former President Donald Trump in 2018. 

This is the first time that the Department conducted all major strategic reviews in an integrated way, aligned with the 2022 National Security Strategy. By weaving these documents together, the entire Department is matching resources to goals. 

The Director, Chris Inglis, will soon be implementation the forthcoming cyber strategy, which is one that could dramatically transform the digital landscape and America's cyber security position. Inglis has said that ONCD worked in close collaboration with federal agencies, industry partners and key stakeholders while developing the plans that are due to be released in the coming days, though it may take a few months to finalise the finial official strategy. 

Director Inglis also said that the plan will address market forces and push cyber regulation "a bit further, as we have for cars," with the strategy aiming to promote "affirmative intentionality."

Inglis says that to make the strategy a success, the effort will take a holistic approach and strong investments from industry stakeholders and other White House partners. This is in contrast to the previous sitution. “Historically, misalignment and disorganisation have been systemic challenges for the government... Deliberate cybersecurity practices demand collaboration to avoid challenges due to a lack of intentionality.” commented Josh Brodbent, regional vice president of solutions engineering at access management firm BeyondTrust

Ross Nodurft, executive director of the Alliance for Digital Innovation and a former head of the Office of Management and Budget's cyber team, told FCW that the ONCD's engagement with industry and stakeholders has been appreciated. Nodurft’s organisation has encouraged ONCD to aim towards "harmonising the regulatory landscape to encourage security over compliance,” he added.

While the previous administration has been criticised over a confusing legacy of cyber policies, Director Inglis office is determined to produce a unified strategy around cyber security - one that improves public-private collaboration and information-sharing efforts, ensures federal coherence and aligns resources to increase cyber resilience.
