Two new U.S. cyber strategies—a holistic national strategy for cyberspace and another guiding the efforts of U.S. military—have reinforced a critical need for the U.S. Departments of Defense and Homeland Security to work together in cyberspace. The strategies raise important questions about how these departments align their activities, determine their roles for defending critical infrastructure, and manage unprecedented threats in cyberspace. The top cyber officials from both departments will discuss these questions in a unique, cross-agency conversation. Carnegie’s Kate Charlet will moderate.
