Groups Launch “Chain of Trust” Initiative

The CDT-organized Anti-Spyware Coalition, working jointly with the National Cyber Security Alliance and, today launched a new initiative to combat malicious software (malware) by establishing a “Chain of Trust” among all organizations and individuals that play a role in securing the Internet. The Initiative will link together security vendors, researchers, government agencies, Internet companies, network providers, advocacy and education groups in a systemic effort to stem the rising tide of malware. Applying many of the same approaches used to bring nuisance adware under control, the Chain of Trust Initiative aims to establish a united front against a threat continues to grow exponentially.
