Public Sector Cybersecurity Committee

Who We Are

The Public Sector Cybersecurity Committee connects leading cybersecurity and information technology companies with key cybersecurity decision makers and stakeholders across the Federal government. It works closely with Federal departments and agencies, the White House, and Congress, to advocate for sustained Federal investment in cybersecurity and modern commercial capabilities across government and privately-owned critical infrastructure. The Committee also promotes the adoption of cybersecurity best practices and the prioritization of cybersecurity in the deployment and integration of emerging technologies.

What We Stand For:

  • Facilitating business relationships and networking opportunities between member companies and key Washington cybersecurity policymakers.
  • Keeping member companies apprised of the very latest activities and news impacting cybersecurity via interactions with Congress, Federal agencies, and the White House.
  • Conducting quarterly (members only) off-the-record meetings with key senior-level officials.
  • Formulating policy positions which are delivered to Congress, Federal agencies, and the Administration.
  • Working with partner associations to strengthen industry and provide a unified voice on the most important issues facing cybersecurity.
