IT industry releases security action plans for DHS

Friday, 19 March 2004, 1:30 AM EST

The National Cyber Security Partnership, a coalition of influential IT industry lobbying groups and companies, today released two of the five action plans it promised to deliver this month to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for improving the nation's cybersecurity.

The plans released so far cover the development of a nationwide early-warning capability and cybersecurity awareness for small businesses and home users. The other three plans, covering corporate governance, technical standards, and secure software development and maintenance, are scheduled to be released in early April.

The release of the action plans follows a commitment from the private sector to the DHS on Dec. 3 at the National Cyber Security Summit in Palo Alto, Calif. The private sector hopes to take an active role in helping the DHS achieve the cybersecurity goals outlined in the Bush administration's National Strategy to Secure Cyber Space.
