Clarke, who chairs the President's Critical Infrastructure Protection Board (PCIPB
), which developed the proposed strategy, "is banking on transforming the federal government's infosec program into the envy of the private sector," says Blake.
On September 18, the President's Critical Infrastructure Protection Board (PCIPB) released its draft report, "The National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace," which contains recommendations for protecting our information systems and technology resources from the desktop to the Internet.
They include the formation of a state CIO advisory group, increased information-sharing among states, inclusion of local government representatives on state cyber-security boards, and finding ways to integrate information at all levels of government to eliminate "stovepipes." PCIPB recommendations are in concert with the state and local recommendations.
