Securing Cyberspace for the 44th President

Folks, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (a “think-tank” which advises Presidents on issues of national security) has released its final report, “Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency.” The Commission’s three major findings are:

  1. Cybersecurity is now one of the major national security problems facing the United States;
  2. Decisions and actions must respect American values related to privacy and civil liberties; and
  3. Only a comprehensive national security strategy that embraces both the domestic and international aspects of cybersecurity will improve the situation.

The report is available as a PDF, here.

It’s nice to have such high-powered folks confirm what I’ve been saying, and maybe there’s hope that the next President will realize that no economy can be bleed of $10 – $105 billion dollars a year.. (estimates vary, as so much is unreported.) I wonder how long it will take to implement a comprehensive international policy?
(And, an old saw about horses and barn doors comes to mind..)
