Feds Delay Launch of Cyber-Security Plan
The National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace won't be out by year's end, and the feds haven't set a new release date.The White Houses cyber-security arm will not release the next draft of its National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace by the end of the year, as it had originally planned. The Presidents Critical Infrastructure Protection Board, which produced the strategy, is still going over the comments submitted this fall on the original draft. No specific date has been set for the release of the next version of the document. "Were hoping to get it out there soon," said Tiffany Olson, deputy chief of staff at the PCIPB in Washington. "Theres no timetable, but itll be early next year."
The board released the first draft of the strategy in September, and the public comment period lasted until mid-November. A number of security vendors and other software and hardware vendors submitted comments. Olson said the board now is working to find a way to release all of the comments it received without identifying their authors.
