NIAC Transforming the U.S. Cyber Threat Partnership Final Report

On September 5, 2019, the National Security Council tasked the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) to examine how the federal government and private industry can collaborate seamlessly to confront urgent cyber risks in the most critical and highly targeted private infrastructure.

Escalating cyber risks to America’s critical infrastructures present an existential threat to continuity of government, economic stability, social order, and national security. U.S. companies find themselves on the front lines of a cyber war they are ill-equipped to win against nation-states intent on disrupting or destroying our critical infrastructure. Bold action is needed to prevent the dire consequences of a catastrophic cyber attack on energy, communication, and financial infrastructures.
