In particular, the White House continues to pursue a "real, relentless focus" on improving critical infrastructure security and U.S. resilience to attacks, disrupting ransomware groups and combating the illicit use of cryptocurrency, said Anne Neuberger, the U.S. deputy national security adviser.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Neuberger discusses:

  • Drivers behind the Biden administration's national cybersecurity strategy, including its focus on critical services and infrastructure;
  • The role cyber plays in global conflicts and how it has been evolving since Russia launched its all-out invasion of Ukraine;
  • Key White House initiatives and what needs to happen to advance them, including securing the internet of things and safeguarding the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Neuberger is deputy assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for cyber and emerging technology at the White House. Previously, she served as the National Security Agency's director of cybersecurity, where she led the NSA's cybersecurity mission, including emerging technology areas such as quantum-resistant cryptography. Prior to this role, Neuberger led NSA's election security effort and served as assistant deputy director of NSA's Operations Directorate, overseeing foreign intelligence and cybersecurity operations. She also served as NSA's first chief risk officer, among other roles. Before her government service, she was senior vice president of operations at American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, where she directed technology and operations.
