A strategic bilateral partnership in cyberspace between India and the United States holds great promise. Delinked from the legacy of a larger strategic relationship, it opens up the possibility of defining a new normal in how the two states cooperate in the transfer of both skills and technology. This chapter highlights the convergence of economic and strategic interests between India and the U.S.. In doing so, it draws attention to questions around the gap of capacity and political will that have ailed cybersecurity cooperation between the two nations. The chapter analyses two things: first, the principled points of divergence that often act as a hurdle for cooperation between the U.S. and India; and second, common threats that the two countries currently face in the cyber realm, which make it critical for them to set aside differences and work together. The chapter makes a case for addressing the underlying economic concerns such as data localization to fully realize the potential for strategic cooperation in cyberspace.
