President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have come to an agreement that will enable the U.S. and U.K. to further their alliance to make cyberspace a safer realm, reports Defense News.
During the prime minister’s visit with President Obama March 14, the two world leaders detailed six areas of continuing focus and partnership, which has been released in a new fact sheet. Among the topics addressed were cybersecurity information sharing – within the two nation’s independently and with each other collectively – cyber threat research and development, and the importance of maintaining the individual’s right to privacy protection, the article said.
“Recognizing there are few areas where partnership across borders is more urgent or necessary, the President and Prime Minister noted with satisfaction the deep level of cooperation that exists between the United States and the United Kingdom in ensuring networked technologies continue to empower our societies and economies, and those around the globe,” the document said.
