To help U.S. policymakers address the increasing problem of cyber insecurity, the Center for a New American Security has released a two-volume report that features insight by industry experts on cybersecurity strategy, policy and technology.

Titled “America’s Cyber Future: Security and Prosperity in the Information Age,” the report was written by 21 experts from the private sector, academia and think tanks.

The first chapter has been authored by CNAS’ Joseph S. Nye, Jr., and focuses on power and national security in cyberspace, followed by a chapter on the 21st-century threatscape by Booz Allen Hamilton Executive Vice President Mike McConnell, who previously served as director of national intelligence.

The Center for Strategic and International Studies senior fellow James A. Lewis has written a chapter titled “Why Privacy and Cybersecurity Clash,” and George Washington University faculty Martha Finnemore has penned the “Cultivating International Cyber Norms” chapter.

The report also offers detailed strategies on how to best deal with cyber insecurity, starting off with the implementation of a comprehensive plan for a safe and secure cyberspace, followed by the creation of an international cybersecurity agenda, the setup of a U.S. declaratory cybersecurity policy, and the increase of cost for cyber attackers.
