Helping make the Internet safe

The nation's critical infrastructure is increasingly dependent on the Internet, while cybersecurity attacks are on the rise. Cybersecurity and National Security are now on the same footing, and require the same kinds of strategic vision. Enacting this vision will benefit all Americans, resulting in economic growth, increased security and privacy, and establishing global cybersecurity leadership in the United States.

To promote these goals, Unisys helped lead a Cybersecurity Moonshot subcommittee that developed a set of recommendations for a "whole of nation approach" for a safer, more resilient internet to deliver government and critical infrastructure services. This initiative echoes the bold, strategic original Moonshot challenge given to American scientists by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 to land humans on the moon. This time, the goal is a safer, more resilient use of the Internet to deliver government and critical infrastructure services securely.

On November 14, 2018, Unisys Chairman and CEO Peter Altabef and Moonshot cochair Mark McLaughlin of Palo Alto Networks delivered the draft report to the White House, receiving a unanimous NSTAC member vote. Cybersecurity Moonshot now begins the next phase of its 10-year proactive initiative to bring a more secure future.

NSTAC has proposed a focus on six strategic pillars for a safe and secure internet to bring economic growth, national security, enhanced privacy, technology advances and global leadership benefits.
