Managing cyber security through a national strategy is a necessity common to all national governments in the 21st century. Critical infrastructure in most nations, from transportation and power generation to food supply and hospitals, depends on Information and Communications Technology (ICT). The reliance on complex and constantly evolving technology is pervasive across all sectors of critical infrastructure, making it very difficult for national governments to understand and mitigate risks related to this technology. In fact, these risks are a shared responsibility that extends outward to include international perspectives. The shared responsibility within the nation includes private industry (Which owns and operates much critical infrastructures), academia, and citizens.
