ISA Urges Beta Testing of Voluntary Cyber Framework

CyberStockThe Internet Security Alliance has proposed that the government test a cybersecurity program for U.S. private industry before fully implementing it, Fedscoop reported Monday.

Dan Verton writes the National Institute of Standards and Technology is scheduled to release in February a final voluntary framework for best practices in securing critical infrastructure.

Larry Clinton, ISA president, will present the group’s proposal at a technology and homeland security conference Tuesday in Boston.

Clinton told Fedscoop the Department of Homeland Security should monitor issues and costs related to framework implementation.

“If we can reliably report this data of cost effectiveness to the community, we will have a much better chance to encourage voluntary participation of framework techniques on a sustainable basis,” Clinton told Fedscooop.
