The National Security Task Force (Task Force) focuses on cybersecurity, supply chain and supply chain security, customs and trade facilitation, public-private partnerships, and emergency preparedness.

The National Security Task Force (Task Force) focuses on cybersecurity, supply chain and supply chain security, customs and trade facilitation, public-private partnerships, and emergency preparedness. The Task Force is composed of companies, associations, and state and local chambers that represent a broad spectrum of the American economy.

Information and communications technologies constantly transform commerce and create new vulnerabilities in the global economy. The Cybersecurity Working Group works to address these issues. 

Working groups within the Task Force on cybersecurity and global supply chains identify current and emerging issues and consider effective policies, and potential reforms.

Separately, the Supply Chain Working Group focuses on trade, customs, security, transportation and their intersection with the global movement of goods at international borders. The group specifically addresses regulation and legislation reflecting the economic needs of facilitating trade and the free movement of goods to enhance U.S. competitiveness. The Cybersecurity Working Group and the Supply Chain Working Group also work together to study the impact and challenges of cyber issues on global supply chains.  

The Task Force launched its Cybersecurity Leadership Council, a group of businesses and associations that have come together to promote cybersecurity policies and to promote the adoption of best practices and market-based solutions. By creating a forum for businesses to have an open dialogue about what is effective, missing, or needed regarding cybersecurity policy or practices, the Council helps to inform the Chamber’s role as a key voice of industry for dialogue with policymakers.
