    Howard Schmidt talks global cooperation in cyberattack prevention, and how the feds should share threat intelligence with private industry. President Obama's cybersecurity coordinator last week hinted that an official effort to foster international cooperation in preventing cybercrime and cyberespionage while protecting privacy and freedom on the Internet could soon be in the works. Howard Schmidt, special assistant to the President and White House cybersecurity coordinator, said in an interview with Dark Reading last week at the RSA Conference in San Francisco that we "will see more" on an international strategy for combating cybercrime and cyberespionage.

    "[Preventing] economic espionage and money-laundering have become a priority that other countries are also actively participating in," Schmidt said. "There are some norms we should start looking at ... how are we going to act as governments?"
