Eric Rosenbach: Legislation Would Standardize Public-Private Info Sharing

Legislation would help standardize the policy process between the Defense Department and private industry on sharing cybersecurity information, a top Pentagon official said Thursday.

American Forces Press Service reports Eric Rosenbach, deputy assistant defense secretary for cyber policy, said such a bill would consider the volume of information traded between the government and private sector.

Rosenbach made the statements during a panel discussion at the Security Innovation Network’s annual conference, Amaani Lyle reports.

Outlining clear roles and responsibilities of federal departments, such as placing the Department of Homeland Security in charge of domestic cybersecurity, would help optimize collaboration within the federal government and military while partnering with the private sector, Rosenbach said.

In March, Rosenbach told an audience at a San Francisco security seminar that DHS should handle securing U.S. critical infrastructure from cyber attacks with the Pentagon playing a supporting role (click here for full coverage of his comments).

Rosenbach also told the SIN panel Thursday detecting attacks is key to cybersecurity and private sector information would complement intelligence sources.
