Civil Liberties and Industry Groups Release Cybersecurity White Paper
Cybersecurity needs not—and should not—trump privacy and other civil liberties, nor should it stifle innovation.
Washington—For the first time, industry groups and civil liberties interests have come together to advocate a comprehensive, common approach to cybersecurity. That approach is reflected in today's release of a cybersecurity white paper that rejects government mandates and advocates for a stronger partnership between industry and government.
- Government and industry should work together to strengthen international standards for cybersecurity, and the government should provide incentives for security levels that go beyond what the market delivers on its own.
- Information sharing for cybersecurity purposes should be transparent and should comply with fair information practice principles.
- A national cybersecurity R&D plan aimed at protecting the most critical and strategic national interests.
