The SmartCyber Leadership Program for Critical Infrastructure

A Leadership Imperative

Our country’s critical infrastructure is a complex ecosystem spanning 16 diverse yet interdependent sectors. This ecosystem is highly vulnerable to all manner of cyberattack, with consequences ranging from debilitating to disastrous.

Leaders in all functions across these sectors must thoroughly understand the constantly evolving cyber landscape, and the threats to which their organizations are vulnerable. Within each organization, they must work together to build cybersecurity and resilience into strategy and operations at every level.
