Cybersecurity Roundtable on Public-Private Partnerships

Bringing together German and American decision-makers to cooperate on areas of mutual interest in the area of cybersecurity and cyber defense policy, the Cybersecurity Roundtable on Public-Private Partnerships works to strengthen transatlantic cooperation on cybersecurity.

Project Description

The Cybersecurity Roundtable on Public-Private Partnership examines how government and nongovernment actors can work together to strengthen early warning and protect against cyber-attacks and illegal intrusions. It looks for ways to develop common strategies for strengthening cybersecurity. The need for the private sector to be part of the dialogue, not only as administrators of government policies, but as standard-setters for privacy and critical infrastructure protection, will remain a priority. Likewise, close cooperation between state agencies and the private sector will remain vital to ensure protection of infrastructure serving the state, the military, and civil society, as well as intellectual property. Agreeing to uphold binding standards to strengthen cybersecurity and advance digitalization will be a vital part of that cooperation.
