Cybersecurity Campaign: Improving Today. Protecting Tomorrow™
The U.S. Chamber’s National Security and Emergency Preparedness Department was established in 2003 to develop and implement the Chamber’s homeland and national security policies. The department works through the National Security Task Force, a policy committee composed of roughly 200 Chamber members representing a broad spectrum of the nation’s economy. The task force’s Cybersecurity Working Group identifies current and emerging issues, crafts policies and positions, and provides analysis and direct advocacy to government and business leaders.
The need to address increasingly sophisticated threats against American and global businesses has gone from an IT issue to a top priority for the C-suite and the boardroom. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue says, “In an interconnected world, economic security and national security are linked. To maintain a strong and resilient economy, we must protect against the threat of cyberattacks.”
