    The changing of the cybersecurity guard at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), coupled with complacency on the part of some corporate executives, has put a higher premium on information-sharing and cooperation between the private sector and the government.

    "The two words to focus on are cooperation and coordination," said Richard Davidson, CEO of Omaha-based Union Pacific Corp., which combats more than 80,000 probes on its networks daily. "That all adds up to partnership and information-sharing, and that is our best form of protection during these challenging times," said Davidson, who also serves as chairman of the President's National Infrastructure Advisory Commission.

    Davidson spoke this week at a U.S. Chamber of Commerce conference in Washington that addressed the roles and responsibilities of the government and private sector in homeland security efforts.
