Overview

The United States (US) delivers strong cyber policy through a sophisticated government structure and comprehensive legislative framework. The establishment of new cyber laws has been relatively successful and the Obama administration has also enacted several Executive Orders in relation to the regulation of cyberspace. The US has a high success rate of addressing cybercrime both domestically and internationally, as well as robust military cyber capabilities, governed by clear policy and strategy. The US Government prioritises the invigoration of its digital economy, and this is achieved through a mature relationship with the private sector and other policy initiatives. The US has maintained its role as a global leader and norm shaper in cyberspace, although a higher score could be achieved through engaging more with South East Asia.
