Comprehensive Government Guide To Formation Of Cyber Security Policies

Business Software Alliance (BSA) : 03 May, 2010  (New Product)
The Business Software Alliance is assisting world Governments in forming cyber security policies with the release of its Cybersecurity Framework
The Business Software Alliance (BSA) has released a first of its kind Global Cybersecurity Framework to assist countries in crafting effective national policies and laws to thwart cybersecurity threats. The BSA Global Cybersecurity Framework is the result of BSA's 17 years of work on cybersecurity issues, and represents years of discussion, collaboration and debate among leading software companies, government leaders and policy influencers.

"The BSA Global Cybersecurity Framework provides a comprehensive set of principles and guidelines to help governments meet their responsibilities to protect cyberspace," said Robert Holleyman, President and CEO of BSA. "Our framework serves as an essential policy and enforcement roadmap for all countries around the globe."

The Global Cybersecurity Framework presents guiding principles on trust, innovation, policy and international standards. The Framework's 12-point Roadmap outlines specifically how governments can implement these guiding principles, including strengthening their ability to deter and punish cybercrime, leveraging standards, keeping citizens informed and protected, and building the capacity to prevent and respond to cyber incidents.

"Cybersecurity is a global issue - and no nation can meet this challenge on its own," said Holleyman. "In the borderless world of cybercrime, national laws and enforcement efforts must align with global approaches and practices."

Following today's announcement at the Cybersecurity Forum in Washington, DC, Holleyman and association members will meet with government officials around the world to discuss the Framework and support its implementation in their respective countries. BSA will track the progress of participating countries in an annual Cybersecurity Scorecard, with the results being announced in 2011.

Today's BSA Cybersecurity Forum in Washington, DC, convened government and corporate leaders to discuss current and emerging cyber threats. BSA members, including Microsoft, Symantec, IBM, CA, HP and Intel, and government leaders, including Senator Jay Rockefeller, Chairman, US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the Honorable Gary Locke, Secretary, US Department of Commerce, are among the participants discussing a global cybersecurity framework to protect public and private institutions and information systems from current and emerging cyber threats.
