Cyberstrategy will get 'substantive reworking'

Cyberstrategy will get 'substantive reworking'

The President's Critical Infrastructure Protection Board has received several hundred responses to its draft strategy for defending cyberspace, released in September for 60 days' public comment.

'I think there will be a substantive reworking of the strategy' to refine its focus on key areas, said Donald A. Purdy, deputy to board vice chairman Howard A. Schmidt. The draft strategy appears at www.securecyberspace.gov.

'I expect we will get a slew of comments today,' he said, and the board will continue accepting comments even after today's deadline. Purdy spoke at a Northern Virginia Technology Council conference.

Individual comments will not be released, but Purdy said the board will make a summary available. He said there is no deadline for releasing the final strategy, but he expects it fairly soon.
