Jen Easterly, the freshly installed head of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), unveiled yesterday a new federal initiative called the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC) which has been structured to help lead the development of the country’s cyber defense plans. The JCDC aims to bring together the public and private sectors in a joint planning capacity to tackle cyber readiness and threats.

CISA’s announcement of the JCDC states that it will “bring together public and private sector entities to unify deliberate and crisis action planning while coordinating the integrated execution of these plans.”  The hope is that the plans will “promote national resilience by coordinating actions to identify, protect against, detect, and respond to malicious cyber activity targeting US critical infrastructure or national interests.”
