Navy Eyes Broader Cyber Partnerships With International Partners

The U.S. Navy said broadening international cybersecurity collaboration would improve best practices, toolkits, information exchange and other capabilities.

Scott St. Pierre, acting principal cyber adviser at the Department of the Navy, shared that multilateral collaboration allows the service to share its experiences with others, while sailors learn from their partners about unique ways to improve cyber offensive and defensive operations. St. Pierre added that the Navy’s push for international partnership is in line with the U.S. Cyber Command’s integrated approach, where it works with its counterparts from other countries in information exchange and other cyber-related work.

The cyber adviser said the Navy needs to continue investing in capabilities to ensure that it can continue working with allies, DefenseScoop reported.

Other government agencies are also looking to enhance cybersecurity partnerships with the international community.

Nathaniel Fick, the U.S. ambassador-at-large for cyberspace and digital policy, said in September that the Department of State is developing a new strategy for international cybersecurity cooperation. In March, Ann Dunkin, chief information officer at the Department of Energy, said the agency is considering a collective cybersecurity approach that would enable it to work with government and private-sector organizations within and outside the United States to combat cyberthreats.
