The Internet Security Alliance has called for government-industry collaborations that examine data-driven approaches to support the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s Cybersecurity Framework, Norse Corp.‘s DarkMatters blog reported Wednesday.
Anthony Freed writes that ISA also believes the Commerce Department should collect data on cost, prioritization and incentives in support of President Barack Obama’s executive order for the framework’s development.
“The [executive order] specifically called for the Framework to be cost-effective, prioritized and be supported by incentives to encourage voluntary use of the Framework,” ISA President Larry Clinton said, according to the report.
“[We] need a systematic data-driven analysis of our assumptions about the cost, benefits and incentives for cyber security.”
Freed reports that ISA urged DOC to partner with the private sector in response to a recent request for information from the National Telecommunications and Infrastructure Agency on strengthening cybersecurity efforts.
Clinton also indicated that the Department of Homeland Security‘s use of TAXII and STIX for cyber information sharing could serve as a model for DOC to follow, the report said.
