State Department Formulating International Cooperation Strategy for Cybersecurity

The U.S. ambassador-at-large for cyberspace and digital policy said the U.S. Department of State is developing a new strategy for international cooperation against cyber threats.

Speaking at the Billington Cybersecurity Summit on Sept. 6, Nathaniel Fick said a draft version of the strategy will be circulated within the government in the fall. According to Fick, the document will build on the Biden administration’s National Cybersecurity Strategy, which includes international partnerships as one of its key pillars, Breaking Defense reported.

The U.S. government has been working with its partners to improve cybersecurity cooperation.

In January, U.S. officials met with their Philippine counterparts for a bilateral strategic dialogue where they assessed the cybersecurity threat landscape in the Asian country and established defense measures.

In December 2022, U.S. and South Korean officials met in Washington, D.C., for the sixth Cyber Policy Consultations meeting. Officials reaffirmed their commitment to promoting cyberspace stability, deepening cybersecurity cooperation, focusing on critical infrastructure resilience and updating each other on national cyber policy and bilateral cooperation developments.
