In ways yet to be seen, cybersecurity has already affected the “agency of the future.” Today, the world is interconnected like never before. As a nation, we must work collaboratively to ensure that cyber defense strategies are robust and effective to secure our way of life.
President Obama said during remarks at the White House, “the cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation” and that “America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cybersecurity.”
Throughout his tenure, President Obama has directed agencies to conduct a thorough analysis of the Federal Government’s efforts to protect data, information, communication and critical infrastructure.

Cyber includes much more than just our personal identity and social security numbers. Every day, cyber defense is used to protect:
Information networks that power business, hospitals and schools
Classified government intelligence and documents
