This was the message from yesterday's National Cyber Security Summit in Santa Clara, Calif. The summit, backed by technology trade groups and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, brought together power players from the tech industry and high-ranking officials from the Department of Homeland Security. The meeting's purpose was for both a formal status check of the business community's efforts (or lack thereof) to embrace cybersecurity guidelines and to brainstorm ways for industry to get involved in helping the government ward off hacker and worm attacks.

    One of the summit's unstated goals was to resolve bickering about whose fault it is that the business community -- which controls 85 percent of the systems that run the nation's computer infrastructure -- has done far less than the government thinks it should to guard against cyber attacks.
