Task force: Classes, security tool kit needed

Friday, 19 March 2004, 1:32 AM EST

The Awareness and Outreach Task Force is one of five groups formed by the National Cyber Security Partnership, an industry and government alliance aimed at finding ways to improve cybersecurity without resorting to legislation. The task force's report is one of two expected to be published on Thursday.

Initially charged with finding ways of increasing awareness of online threats and good security practices among home users and small businesses, the working group broadened its focus to include educating larger organizations and state and local governments. The group expanded its mission to better support the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace, which recommends that each Internet participant learn to secure their portion of the online domain, said Howard Schmidt, co-chairman of the task force and a former top White House cybersecurity official.
