The Center for Strategy and Technology suggests that the Air Force continue to anticipate and develop countermeasures to emerging threats in order to proactively protect and dominate the cyberspace domain of the future.
The Internet and its communications infrastructure serve as the critical backbone of information exchange that is vital to U.S. security, says the U.S. Business Roundtable in this report. Yet the United States is not sufficiently prepared for a major attack, software incident or natural disaster that would lead to disruption of large parts of the Internet.
The U.S. Government describes this policy, released in February 2003, as an attempt to "engage and empower Americans to secure the portions of cyberspace that they own, operate, control, or with which they interact."

The global threat of cyber-attacks on internet infrastructure has been amplified in recent years, with breaches affecting major financial institutions, the U.S. Department of Defense, and even entire countries. In the U.S., President Obama has declared cybersecurity to be a national priority, stressing the importance of public-private collaboration. Despite this newfound policy attention to the issue of cybersecurity, broad-scale cooperation, both between national entities, and between the public and private sectors has not caught up to the global scale of cyber-attacks. Join Massimo Sarmi and Stephen Flynn, in discussing Poste Italiane's new initiative for global cooperation in ensuring cybersecurity.
About Poste Italiane's cybersecurity initiative: Poste Italiane intends to create an International Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security, based in Rome, with a strong collaboration with the Ministry of Interiors, National Police and qualified partners coming from public institutions, private bodies, research institutions and international bodies. The objective of the Centre will be to act as a facilitator and collector of knowledge and culture in matters pertaining to Cyber Security, to support Italian and international organizations in acquiring knowledge and experience, to contribute towards the development of technical and regulatory standards for better protection of citizens, the government and private organizations.
