Stephen Cambone, former undersecretary of defense for intelligence, said that he believes there is “no such notion of security” in the Internet as he calls for increased public understanding of cybersecurity, Information Week reported Monday.

Patience Wait writes that Cambone joined other cybersecurity professionals at SAP National Security Services‘ National Security Summit to highlight efforts to raise awareness among the public about the nature of online security threats.

Cambone noted that Congress should take action and develop legislation to encourage private-sector companies to release and share information on cyber attacks.

Wait reports that companies are usually wary of sharing experienced attacks due to legislative factors and the potential impact on their business.

Cambone said Congress should “bring the right people [in] both chambers together to see where legislation will help,” the report said.
