U.S. and United Kingdom Release Joint Statement on Cyber Resilience

The statement marked the one-year anniversary of the partnership.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and European Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton updated the joint statement on the United States and United Kingdom cooperation on cyber resiliency.

The officials stated, “We strongly welcome the close cooperation between the United States and the European Union to secure our people, critical infrastructure, and businesses against detrimental cyber activities. In a geopolitical and technological landscape marked by the proliferation of new threats and malicious actors, it is paramount that we continue to cooperate and join forces to promote our shared values and objectives in cyberspace.“

They added, “Over the last year, these workstreams have borne robust, focused, and strategic cooperation. Notable outcomes include a commitment to compare and, where possible, align on the implementation of our cyber incident reporting requirements.“

The joint statement also outlined further cooperation efforts upon which the two nations have agreed “to promote our shared objectives of a secure cyberspace.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Mayorkas to be led by the Lord as he heads DHS.
  • For U.S. and UK officials as they collaborate on cyber security and seek to prevent cyber threat incidents.
