Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure Resilience in North America
North America faces shared threats, especially to its critical infrastructure and financial sectors, as well as shared opportunities, such as public-private partnerships to make a more resilient cyber landscape. Sharing best practices on a trilateral basis gives each country a chance to strengthen cybersecurity at home and across the continent. This policy brief reviews the approach each of the three North American governments has taken in facing cyber threats to financial transactions and critical infrastructure and identifies ways in which some of those approaches create opportunities for trilateral cooperation to strengthen continental security in this new and evolving realm.
This policy brief is part of our series "North America 2.0: Forging a Continental Future". The policy briefs will be released individually and published as a volume in 2021.
