Over the last decade, the cybersecurity landscape has changed dramatically. Cybersecurity concerns are now center stage at all levels of industry, government, and the law enforcement and emergency services communities. While progress has been made in efforts to gather and share intelligence, data, and information, a significant gap remains between the ability to gather and share information and the ability to predict impending cyber-attacks and to thwart them before they are successful. The Cyber Hub Operations Framework was created to support collaboration and cooperation among a wide range of stakeholders. This framework is intended to leverage, not replace, existing organizations and structures, and move states toward an operational cyber construct that is risk-based versus compliance-based.
