US Government increases focus on cybersecurity

McAfee : 01 June, 2009  (Company News)
McAfee comments on the announcement by the US government that the IT security of infrastructure is essential to national security
McAfee has welcomed the news that the US government at the highest level has recognized cybersecurity of critical US public and private infrastructure as an essential component of national security.

The release of the Obama administration's 60 Day Cybersecurity Review on Friday provides the foundation for the nation's dedicated approach to protecting critical assets from cyberattack.

"Cybersecurity must be a national priority, and today the Obama administration made that clear," said Dave DeWalt, McAfee president and chief executive officer, who attended the release event at the White House. "Government and private sector, including McAfee, actively collaborated on this initiative. We look forward to continued participation in an even stronger partnership with the government to ensure that our institutions and citizens are able to fully participate in a secure and networked world."

As the administration implements the comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, McAfee is eager to continue working with the White House, other elements of government and the private sector to further secure the nation's most important assets and infrastructure.

"The release of the 60 Day Cybersecurity Review marks the beginning of a new era of US leadership in the critical field of cybersecurity," DeWalt said.
