On April 4, 2022, the State Department formed a new bureau, the Bureau of Cybersecurity and Digital Policy (CDP) . The establishment of the new bureau should come as no surprise since the White House released a statement on March 21, 2022, urging the federal government’s private sector partners to:

“…harden your cyber defenses immediately by implementing best practices we have developed together over the past year.”

The Biden administration also released a fact sheet the same day entitled, “Act Now to Protect Against Potential Cyberattacks.”
