In January 2022, the US Government Cyber Security Strategy was launched. This initiative aims to protect the government against cyber-attacks, strengthen the USA as a sovereign country, and establish its position in the cyber world as a democratic and technological powerhouse.
The advisory board is open to applications from anyone interested. Applicants are asked to send expressions of interest and to join the discussion about shaping the future cybersecurity. The success of the External Challenge Panel brought together industry and academic perspectives. This advisory board will continue to build on that success.
The US Government Cybersecurity Advisory Board brings together experts from academia, the private sector, and government. This will create a bridge between them and connect their interests towards a common vision. The board’s goal is to solve the most pressing cybersecurity problems facing the USA.
