US Defense Department has established a Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative

A joint cyber defence Collaborative (JCDC) has been formed by the CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency). By Collaborative with both the public and commercial sectors, the JCDC develops the nation’s cyber defence strategies and assists in defending vital infrastructure from cyber attacks.It will enhance national resilience by coordinating activities across federal agencies, state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) allies and private sector entities in order to identify, guard against, detect and plan for hostile cyber activity targeting critical infrastructure in the U.S. Police and intelligence agencies will be assisted in their efforts by the JCDC in unifying cyber defence.

CISA’s director called for the creation of a unique planning capacity that would allow the nation’s collective response to cyber threats to be proactive rather than reactive.CISA’s homepage on the new cooperation states that officials from federal partner agencies would collaborate within the JCDC office to drive U.S. cyber defence plans and outline best practices to stop cyberattacks and limit their effect.

For the JCDC, coordinating governmental and private sector measures to prevent cyberattacks, notably ransomware, and developing incident response frameworks is a significant objective. Among them are the National Security Agency, the FBI, the Department of Defense, and the United States government. Cyber Command is one of the government partners involved in the project.

A Collaborative, inclusive environment will be created by the JCDC to develop proactive cyber defence plans and to assist all sectors in implementing coordinated operations for the prevention and response to cyberattacks, Industry and government must continue to work together in order to combat today’s sophisticated assaults.
