National and Cyber Security

Economic security and national security go hand-in-hand. We must have one in order to protect the other.

The Chamber advocates for protecting vital U.S. assets—both physical and digital—to ensure the safety and security of our citizens and promote the free flow of commerce and information that drives our economy and enriches our society.

Projects and Programs




FICO & U.S. Chamber of Commerce Assessment of Business Cybersecurity (ABC) Index

The FICO & U.S. Chamber of Commerce Assessment of Business Cybersecurity (ABC) index is a quarterly report designed to help organizations better understand and manage their cybersecurity risk.  The ABC provides a relative measure of cybersecurity effectiveness across U.S. companies, as well as a benchmark for assessing the long-term impact of efforts to strengthen network security and data protection practices.


Our Priorities

Our mission is to promote and enact sound cybersecurity and global supply chain policies to facilitate safe and secure domestic and global commerce and trade, as well as the free movement of goods to enhance U.S. competitiveness. 


  • Advance operational collaboration between U.S. national security agencies and critical infrastructure entities to proactively defend against foreign cyberattacks. 
  • Pass Internet of Things (IoT) legislation that reflects the industry-led core security baseline, protects device makers and buyers, reduces policy fragmentation globally, and bolsters collective defense. 
  • Enact the Cyber SAFETY Act to clarify that the 2002 SAFETY Act’s liability protections apply to significant cyber incidents. 
  • Advance the rapid and secure deployment of 5G domestically while ensuring that national and international policy is aligned, promotes open and interoperable radio networks, is risk based, and fosters a vibrant technology market that rewards security and innovation.
