American businesses face an unprecedented level of attacks in cyberspace that continue to grow in severity, number, and sophistication each year. As cyber threats have continued to escalate, the value of the digital products and services that criminals are targeting has also grown. Digital technologies are essential to American life and commerce. The nation’s economic security depends on the ability of U.S. companies to effectively defend their networks, safeguard their data, and provide secure and resilient services. Business Roundtable recognizes that effective cybersecurity protection requires a strong partnership between the public and private sectors who together must prioritize cybersecurity policies and initiatives that enable better defense against cyber threats.
Business Roundtable supports policies that:
Enhance cyber threat information sharing between the public and private sector,
Promote the continued development of voluntary, industry-led, risk-based cybersecurity standards, and
Combat fraud by building a trusted and resilient digital identity ecosystem.
