Natonal Forum for Public Private Collaboration
“ Thank you for continuing your efforts to help create opportunities for collaboration and coordination. Clearly, we, and the nation, are all better served if we work together. You are helping us take a “Baldrige-like” approach– driving alignment and integration across our distinct entities and helping us take a holistic perspective on how our efforts can inform and enhance each other’s work. "
A Powerful Opportunity
" Cybersecurity standards represent the collective insight of thousands of cyber risk managers who know best the basic steps that every organization should take to protect itself from cyber harm. What’s needed now are the specific cyber risk controls that clarify how to implement those standards to ensure maximum cybersecurity impact. With its resilience focus, the Forum will offer participants a powerful opportunity to define and identify those controls – most especially for the “Respond” and “Recover” functions of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. "
Assure Cyber Resilience
“ To assure cyber resilience, everyone must have a seat at the table. Forums, like this, help bring together thought leaders to focus attention on the potential challenges we face in our industries. I remain supportive and highly value the important work you do, as well as the distinctive and impactful way you do it. Thanks for your Service to Nation (and those nations depending on us) with the transformation you lead. "
" The holistic concept of resilience encompasses more than traditional security measures. It speaks to the optimization of people, process, and technology to yield systems that are not only secure but will inherently survive, and recover from a wide array of threats and caustic environments. The Global Forum to Advance Cyber Resilience is the first of its kind targeting operationalizing standards and practices focused on the critical issue of cyber resilience. "
Provides an ongoing platform to exchange ideas
“ We see this type of collaboration between public and private-sector leaders as an imperative in today’s dangerous and constantly shifting cyber environment. Today’s meeting started an important dialogue between key players.
The Forum provides an ongoing platform to exchange ideas and develop action plans – not only for the companies and government organizations already well-versed in best practices to combat cyber attacks, but for those still learning the size and scope of the daily cyber threats we all face. ”
Help Health ISAC take standards, frameworks, best practices, lessons learned to next level
“ We have a historic opportunity to leverage bringing together increasingly connected and globally trusted public and private sector leaders to operationalize cyber resilience. The Forum’s strategic focus to take standards, frameworks, best practices and lessons learned to the next level via sector and sector-specific operational guidance and workforce education would greatly contribute to global critical infrastructure sustainable resilience. ”
Prioritize Spending Get Greatest Impact
“ We offer affordable insurance to organizations that do the right things to minimize the effect of cyber-attacks. Technical protections are important, but they are not foolproof. Resilience includes having trained people to identify, limit and recover from incidents. The Forum to advance Cyber Resilience is bringing a critical mix of government and private sector resources to align standards and prioritize spending to get the greatest impact in limiting cyber risk. ”
“ Cyber Resilience is at the cutting edge of future trends in cybersecurity. The Forum is well positioned, after this inaugural event, to leverage national and international talent and interest to address this important component. ”
