"Cyber is ubiquitous in our lives today. Fortunately, American technological skill and ingenuity has granted the United States and its allies distinct advantages in that crucial arena. This is particularly true as regards the furthering of our commercial and national security interests. The Cyber Security Forum Initiative (CSFI) is unique in its mission of maintaining and furthering those advantages by fostering Cyber awareness and collaboration among the U.S. government, military and commercial sectors, as well as with international partners. The breadth and scope of that effort is indicative of the nature of Cyber dangers emanating from both state and non-state actors. Indeed, CSFI is prescient not only in its work in defeating current Cyber threats but also in anticipating future challenges. In its provision of security solutions, guidance and education on Cyber issues, CSFI is working to prepare government andindustry for the Cyber challenges to come. By promoting collaboration and an exchange of ideas on Cyber between government and industry, CSFI is not only helping give our military services, intelligence and law enforcement agencies the skills and resources they need both to protect us and to project American power. Of equal import, CSFI is also aiding American commercial, industrial and research organizations in shielding from Cyber attack the intellectual property and proprietary information that under gird American interests and security. I very much look forward to continuing to assist CSFI with its important mission in future."
