WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today the U.S. Chamber of Commerce hosted the Cyber Risk to Resilience Forum, convening cybersecurity leaders from the public and private sectors to urge unified cybersecurity requirements across the U.S. Government, which is critical to safeguarding U.S. critical infrastructure, sensitive data, and national security. Government and business leaders also explored strategies for public-private cooperation to strengthen U.S. digital resilience and better respond to and recover from cyber threats.

Speakers included Acting National Cyber Director Kemba Walden, the FBI’s Section Chief for National Security Cyber Operations Brett E. Leatherman, Trend Micro’s Chief Cybersecurity Officer Ed Cabrera, and Christopher Roberti, the U.S. Chamber’s Senior Vice President for Cyber, Space, and National Security Policy. 

Acting National Cyber Director Kemba Walden said, “As we continue to make America’s digital ecosystem more secure, defensible, and aligned with our values, we need increased cooperation between government, and the private sector, and the broader cybersecurity community to rebalance the responsibility to defend cyber space in every U.S. industry sector.  As we implement the President’s National Cyber Security Strategy, we look forward to continuing to engage the private sector as together we realize a new cyber road map to secure the full benefits of a safe and secure digital ecosystem for all Americans.”

Christopher Roberti said, “Cybercrime against public and private entities has escalated in frequency and complexity, underlining the urgency of public-private coordination to better secure American cyberspace. The full benefits of a safe, secure digital ecosystem for all Americans can only be achieved through collaboration between government and industry, which would foster information sharing, enhance understanding of cyber threats, protect our critical infrastructure and advance U.S. cybersecurity alongside our democratic values. The U.S. Chamber will continue partnering with government to harmonize cybersecurity regulations, enhance the cybersecurity of critical infrastructure, software, and sensitive data, and improve our national security.”
