On March 1, 2023, the Biden-Harris administration released a National Cybersecurity Strategy, a 39-page document citing the need to “make fundamental shifts in how the United States allocates roles, responsibilities, and resources in cyberspace.” In the Strategy, the Administration asserts that the nation must “rebalance the responsibility to defend cyberspace by shifting the burden for cybersecurity away from individuals, small businesses, and local governments,” as well as “realign incentives to favor long-term investments by striking a careful balance between defending ourselves against urgent threats today and simultaneously strategically planning for and investing in a resilient future.”
The Biden-Harris Administration’s approach is centered around five pillars:
- Defend Critical Infrastructure
- Disrupt and Dismantle Threat Actors
- Shape Market Forces to Drive Security and Resilience
- Invest in a Resilient Future
- Forge International Partnerships to Pursue Shared Goals
