Develop a coordinated foreign cybersecurity assistance program
FCC Chapter: 14.12
The Executive Branch should develop a coordinated foreign cybersecurity assistance program to assist foreign countries in the development of legal and technical expertise to address cybersecurity.
The federal government must work collaboratively with international partners to address detection, prevention, mitigation and response with respect to cybersecurity.
Each federal government agency with expertise should work collaboratively with its counterpart agencies in foreign governments to nourish the worldwide development of legal and technical cybersecurity expertise.
In 1999, the U.S. led a similar collaborative effort to develop global expertise in telecom regulation, leading to the publication of Connecting the Globe: A Regulator's Guide to Building a Global Information Community. A similar effort should be undertaken by the United States government in cybersecurity, bringing multiple countries together to share information on best practices.
