Cyber Safe Communities - a moonshot architecture for securing critical infrastructure and local citizens
RTX has developed a novel framework to address the security of America’s critical infrastructure and local communities.The goal of this framework is the deployment of cybersecurity best practices and technologies across the US at scale butwith local governance and control. In this framework, the US is geographically subdivided into “Cyber Districts” which align with current municipal boundaries and roughly approximate the size of zip code regions. Within a Cyber District, residents are provided access to a community owned and operated secure local area network similar to a corporate LAN.The intent is to provide secure networking for high consequence, regulated transactions such as financial and medical records along with other critical infrastructure interactions. Cyber Districts enable pooled risk and community-level data ownership and control, and ultimately cyber-physical resiliency on a national scale. In this talk Fred will share this vision of Cyber Safe Communities, provide a quick history of the United States Postal Inspection Service, and solicit feedback on how to shape the concept moving forward.
