  • Promote strategies to mitigate cyber threats to select critical infrastructure operations;
  • Identify areas for greater public-private collaboration through Sector Coordinating Councils (SCCs), Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), and other fora;
  • Identify and address obstacles to greater public-private collaboration; and
