DHS to Offer Cybersecurity Guidance to Private Sector
January 11, 2012
A new report finds there's no shortage of guidance available to help protect the nation's critical infrastructure from cyber attacks. But getting the most relevant advice to the private-sector operators is another matter.
The Government Accountability Office study says many businesses are subject to federal regulations and are required by law to adhere to cybersecurity standards. But it found that so-called "non-covered" entities are barraged by a plethora of cyber guidance, and they could use some help from the Department of Homeland Security to figure out what practices are most relavent to their industry.
