(Security Week, 9/24/18)
The White House last week announced the release of the 2018 National Cyber Strategy, which outlines the government’s plans for ensuring the security of cyberspace.
Described by officials as the “first fully articulated cyber strategy in 15 years,” the new strategy describes how the current administration plans on protecting the country against cyber threats and strengthening the United States’ cyber capabilities.
The strategy shows that the U.S. is prepared to take a more aggressive posture, which includes an offensive response against nations engaging in cyber activity aimed at the country. Officials warned that the government’s response to a cyberattack may not necessarily be in the cyber world.
