Will Government Take the Lead in Securing the Web for Your Business?

A recent report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies urged the incoming administration to take a leading role in protecting both the public and private sectors on the web. The report was compiled by a group of more that sixty experts coming from various positions within in the security industry.

What are some of the recommendations? No more passwords -- the future of effective security will depend on what is known as "strong authentication" (this can range from serial device identification to physical confirmation).  Further recommendations include the creation of a semi-centralized cyber security agency, a drastic restriction of general access, and closer cooperation between the government and business. More than anything else the report emphasized the need for a less market based approach -- protecting the enterprise should be part of an overall approach to national cyber security. Interested in how the new administration's approach could effect your business's security plan, download the full report.
