Cybersecurity in Perspective

More than a Technology Challenge

Earlier this year, CISA Director Jen Easterly and Executive Assistant Director Eric Goldstein argued that “[w]hat the United States faces is less a cyber problem than a broader technology and culture problem.” That observation is consistent with what the general public increasingly sees everyday – cyber is a component of many major geopolitical, technological, and business challenges facing the United States today. 

To better understand how cyber fits into the broader geopolitical and cultural landscape, and how the US government is working to respond, we sat down with CISA Director Jen Easterly for a one-on-one conversation. She discussed US government efforts to promote technology that is secure-by-design and secure-by-default, CISA’s work to increase cyber resilience in the runup to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, election security, and how generative AI could change how we think about security.
