Do we need to institutionalize the U.S. government’s cyber threat information sharing before a catastrophic cyber attack? Governor Kean and Congressman Hamilton, co-chairs of BPC’s Homeland Security Project, asked this question in their most recent op-ed, calling for the creation of a cyber NCTC.

BPC hosted a discussion on the frameworks currently facilitating cyber threat information sharing across government agencies, the gaps and failures in this system, the threat those gaps pose, as well as what changes, if any, need to be made.
