Our advanced intelligence monitoring system ensures that emerging threats and advanced attack methods are identified and thwarted before damage is done.

In addition to regulation, the federal government has tried to improve cybersecurity by allocating more resources to research and collaborating with the private-sector to write standards. In 2003, the President’s National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace made the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responsible for security recommendations and researching national solutions. The plan calls for cooperative efforts between government and industry “to create an emergency response system to cyber-attacks and to reduce the nation’s vulnerability to such threats”. In 2004, Congress allocated $4.7 billion toward cybersecurity and achieving many of the goals stated in the President’s National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. Some industry security experts state that the President’s National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace is a good first step but is insufficient. Bruce Schneier stated that “The National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace hasn’t secured anything yet”. However, the President’s National Strategy clearly states that the purpose is to provide a framework for the owners of computer systems to improve their security rather than the government taking over and solving the problem. Yet, companies that participate in the collaborative efforts outlined in the strategy are not required to adopt the discovered security solutions.

In the European Union, the draft legislation would “require all companies to report attacks on and breaches of their networks to local authorities, which would be obliged to make them public”. Business lobbyists, however, believe that such laws would sully brand reputations and burden companies with high compliance costs.
