The White House unveiled its long-awaited National Cybersecurity Strategy on Thursday, laying out a holistic approach to improving digital security across the country. “This strategy recognizes that robust collaboration, particularly between the public and private sectors, is essential to securing cyberspace. It also takes on the systemic challenge that too much of the responsibility for cybersecurity has fallen on individual users and small organizations,” President Joe Biden said in a statement attached to the document.The president said the country must “rebalance the responsibility for cybersecurity to be more effective and more equitable.” “We will realign incentives to favor long-term investments in security, resilience, and promising new technologies. We will collaborate with our allies and partners to strengthen norms of responsible state behavior, hold countries accountable for irresponsible behavior in cyberspace, and disrupt the networks of criminals behind dangerous cyberattacks around the globe,” Biden said. “And we will work with the Congress to provide the resources and tools necessary to ensure effective cybersecurity practices are implemented across our most critical infrastructure.” It is the country’s first cybersecurity blueprint since the administration of former President Donald Trump released a National Cyber Strategy in 2018. Since then, high-profile attacks on the U.S. government — like the one involving software company SolarWinds in 2020 — as well as a cascade of daily ransomware attacks, data breaches and escalating threats from state-backed criminal hacking groups have increased the need for a more coordinated cybersecurity plan.
