The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies held a special conference, A National Cyber Doctrine: The Time Is Now, on Tuesday, December 4, at The National Press Club. The event featured the release of the new book from the Potomac Institute Press, #CyberDoc: No Borders - No Boundaries.

Panelists at the December 4 event addressed the urgent need for a cyber doctrine to guide US policy in an era of proliferating cyber challenges to our national security, even as Congress and the White House struggle to find a way forward. Formulating such a doctrine is made more complicated by the numerous "gray areas" in which national and private interests overlap, lack of clarity about which government entities should assume responsibility for cyber security, and the limited utility of past paradigms (such as the circumstances surrounding creation of a nuclear policy) in the current climate.
