Cybersecurity Strategy, Law and Policy Group Assignment
Research paper in APA format
The Chief Technology Officer (CTO) has indicated that your organization has been requested by the National Security Council (NSC) to comment on the upcoming National Cybersecurity Strategy. The NSC has asked for specific recommendations as it relates to the next cybersecurity strategy, private / public partnerships, and comments on how specific technologies should be incorporated into the assessment.
The CTO has asked you to lead a group of experts to provide the organizational input. The specific questions you must respond to are provided below.

  1. The Department of Defense (DoD) Cyber Strategy discusses the protection of critical infrastructure and the homeland. What does that mean to private organizations such as yourself? If the majority of critical infrastructure in the United States is owned by the private sector, what responsibility does the DoD have in this regard? Some would argue our laws are outdated and thus the DoD has little authority to assist. Others would argue our laws were purposely established such that the private sector would defend itself and not need assistance from the military. Obviously, for the DoD to assist they would need the private organizations data. Said another way, they would need your data as a private citizen/customer of that organization. Those that believe our laws need to be updated argue giving up privacy for protection is legitimate. Others will argue that we should not give private information of citizens to the government for any reason. As a citizen would you feel comfortable with this? As a private organization, would you feel comfortable giving information that may contain your customers private data to the DoD? Is there a third solution (middle ground) you would propose that enables privacy but also enables cybersecurity?
    • Use additional sources as needed and be sure to critically analyze the questions, addressing the pros and cons in your proposal.
    • Use visuals where appropriate.
  1. The NSS is looking to address particular technologies that have the opportunity to revolutionize cybersecurity. They believe blockchain technology is a revolutionary technology that has the ability to significantly improve cybersecurity. What would be your recommendation for how the NSS should incorporate this technology to the public. Propose exactly what you believe should be written in the NSS. Specifically, explain the blockchain technology in layman terms to non-technical people that may be reading the NSS, give examples of how it could be used to provide revolutionary cybersecurity, include examples of how it is being used to provide cybersecurity solutions, and discuss what, if any policies or laws should be established to mandate its use in specific industries.
    • Use additional sources of information but also describe the concept in layman terms.
    • Use visuals where appropriate.
