Abstract : The U.S. Information Technology (IT) industry is both a specific industry and a foundational element for all other major industries. While the industry is strong and can support current National Security Strategy (NSS) requirements, the U.S. must address upcoming challenges to continue enabling and protecting our current and future strategic capabilities. By building and promoting relationships among government, industry and academia, the U.S. government (USG) can overcome the challenges of maintaining a strong IT workforce, protecting critical infrastructures and technologies, managing our intellectual property rights, and transforming our industrial-based military to continue leading the world in innovation and technological superiority.
