RSA: Cybersecurity Czar Outlines Priorities
Among Schmidt's priorities are the "resilience" of federal government networks and ensuring those networks are properly secured, and ensuring that private-sector partners also have sufficiently secured systems and networks. "The government is not going to secure the private sector," Schmidt said. "[But] we are making sure our [private sector] partners have more security as part of what we're doing."
And when it comes to security incident response (IR), he says, these firms have not had a central point of contact. He says he's looking over IR issues for these partners, who want to know who to call when an incident occurs and how to protect their intellectual property. Schmidt says he also wants to ensure state and local governments have law enforcement cyber operations.
