As Melissa Hathaway, CRI leading author, explains: "the United States, like many other countries around the world, has yet to align its economic vision with its national security imperatives …"
According to the CRI 2.0 assessment, the United States is on a path to becoming cyber ready, and is currently partially operational in most of the seven CRI essential elements. As the United States continues to develop and update its economic (digital agenda) and national cyber security strategies, policies, and initiatives to reflect a more balanced approach that aligns its national economic visions with its national security priorities, updates to this country profile will reflect those changes and monitor, track, and evaluate substantive and notable improvements.
The CRI 2.0 methodology is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish, and is currently being applied to 125 countries. The CRI country profiles of Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom are forthcoming.
Ms. Hathaway is a PIPS Senior Fellow and member of the Board of Regents. She led cybersecurity initiatives for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama until August 2009, when she left to establish Hathaway Global Strategies, LLC. The CRI team additionally includes Chris Demchak, Jason Kerben, Jennifer McArdle, and Francesca Spidalieri.
