Gov’t To Partner With Industry on Cyber Threat Info
CYBERSECURITY—UKMarch 28, 2013
ComputerWeekly reports that the UK government has unveiled plans to work with industry to share cyber-threat information. The Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CISP) features a virtual “collaboration environment” portal where government and business can securely share intelligence on cyber threats and vulnerabilities. The initiative also has the support of the Obama administration. Former White House Cyber Security Advisor Howard Schmidt said, “U.S. experience has shown the importance of leadership in business in fighting cyber threats, and that is why the UK CISP is important and will succeed.” Editor’s Note: The breakout session Cyber Attacks: Legal Implications for Financial Institutions will be part of the IAPP Data Protection Intensive in London, UK, April 23-25.
