Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.

Colleagues, during last month’s RSA Conference 34 tech companies including Microsoft, Facebook, HPE, ABB, Arm, Cisco, Nokia, Oracle, and Trend Micro announced a Cybersecurity Tech Accord (aka Digital Geneva Convention) pledging to mount a united effort against state-sponsored cybercrime and warfare. Notable abstentions included Amazon, Alphabet and Apple. According to Juniper Research cybersecurity attacks on organizations and commercial entities is expected to reach an $8 trillion impact by 2022. The essence of the Accord is a four-fold commitment to: 1) Share threats and minimize the potential for malicious code to be introduced into cyberspace, 2) Protect all customers globally regardless of the motivation of the attack, 3) Will not help governments launch cyberattacks against innocent citizens, and 4) Empower users to make effective use of their products with new security practices and new features. Here at CSD applaud this move … particularly in light of increased cyber threats from Russia, Iran, North Korea and non-state bad actors. Bottom line: Will the four-fold commitment of the Accord be fulfilled in concrete deeds not just words on a signed piece of paper to appease the public and free-democratic governments?
