From the Abstract: "In today's global cybersecurity environment, U.S. federal agencies and private sector organizations are engaged in national cyber defense actions designed to protect against intrusion from state and non-state actors, foreign militaries, organized crime, and sophisticated hackers attempting to commit malicious activity or espionage against America's essential networks. The purpose of this paper, which concentrates in US cybersecurity defense as a strategic 'way' of supporting America's enduring national security interests, is threefold. To define cybersecurity defense in a paradigm that is universally acceptable within the American construct; to identify and discuss U.S. cybersecurity defense strategies by examining the progression of America's cybersecurity defense policies and the subsequent Federal agency roles which have developed within the U.S. government configuration; and provides a recommendation to improve America's national cybersecurity defense posture by implementing public-private partnership information sharing programs for critical network infrastructure security within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector."
