Industry Coalition Launches to Improve Network Resilience and Cybersecurity

The Network Resilience Coalition [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6], a newly formed alliance coordinated by the non-profit Center for Cybersecurity Policy & Law, aims to address urgent cybersecurity challenges and improve public policy [5]. This coalition brings together leaders in networking, service providers [2] [3] [4] [6], and cybersecurity to enhance global network and hardware resilience.


The Network Resilience Coalition [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6], consisting of major networking technology suppliers such as AT&T, Cisco [1] [2] [3] [5] [6], Palo Alto Networks [1] [2] [3] [5] [6], and Verizon [5] [6], recognizes the need for collaboration in tackling cyber attacks and ensuring network resilience [5]. They emphasize the importance of robust patching and vulnerability management programs to prevent cyber attacks [5]. The coalition advocates for better network visibility and promotes timely software and hardware updates.

As part of their efforts, the coalition plans to produce a comprehensive report outlining the main challenges and providing actionable recommendations for improving patch and vulnerability management and network security. This alliance aims to improve the security of data and networks that support global economic and national security [3]. Industry leaders such as Fortinet, VMware [1] [2] [3] [6], Intel [1] [2] [3] [6], Broadcom [1] [2] [3] [6], BT Group [1] [2] [3] [6], Juniper Networks [1] [2] [3] [6], and Lumen Technologies are also part of this coalition.


The Network Resilience Coalition’s initiatives have significant implications for the security of data and networks worldwide. By promoting collaboration and advocating for better network visibility, timely updates, and robust patching and vulnerability management programs [2] [5], the coalition aims to enhance network and hardware resilience. The comprehensive report they plan to produce will provide actionable recommendations for improving network security. Additionally, legislation such as the Product Security and Telecom Infrastructure Act is seen as a potential solution to encourage manufacturers to share information about IoT device security management [6]. Through these efforts, the coalition aims to strengthen global cybersecurity and safeguard both economic and national security.
