Cyber crime and cyber terrorism are mounting threats to U.S. business interests and consumers in the digital age.  Several recent cyber breaches impacting millions of consumers across the country highlight the growing risk of cyber-attacks and the importance of greater information sharing between the public and private sectors regarding threats.  The ability of businesses to actively cooperate by sharing information regarding the nature, origin, and severity of incoming threats is critical to defending commercial interests and the security of customer information.  The Forum will work with policymakers to ensure that businesses and corporations have the information and technical tools necessary to collaborate with the public sector to address cyber risks and ensure cybersecurity.
