CISA’s Collaborative Mission of Public Private Partnerships

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, better known as CISA, was spun up in 2018, operating under the Department of Homeland Security. In July of 2021, Jen Easterly was confirmed by the US Senate as director of CISA, and under her leadership the organization has continued its efforts toward public private partnerships in cybersecurity. CISA recently established the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), an effort by the agency to lead the development of proactive cyber defense operations plans.

Kiersten Todt is chief of staff at CISA, and she joins us with insights on the agency’s efforts.
