AFF/CYBERWAR: WE MUST ACT NOW TO PREVENT CYBERWAR
IT IS OUR DUTY TO THE FUTURE TO MOBILIZE AGAINST CYBER WAR NOW
NEWT GINGRICH, Hoover Institution at Stanford University, April, 2001 Information Security SECTION: SECURITY PERSPECTIVES; Pg. 36 HEADLINE: Threats of Mass Disruption //VT2002acsln
We owe it to our children and grandchildren, as well as our forefathers, to take information security seriously. We need to undertake the effort to make cyberspace more secure for our people, economy and our national interests. That is our duty, for our generation and our posterity, as we continue to evolve in the digital age.
MUST HAVE A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO STOP CYBER WAR ATTACKS
JAMES ADAMS, National Security Agency Advisory Board, May, 2001 / June, 2001 Foreign Affairs SECTION: ESSAYS; Pg. 98 HEADLINE: Virtual Defense //VT2002acsln
EVEN IF Washington takes steps to create, guide, and direct a coherent strategy to combat the cyber-threats to national security, effective defense will work only in cooperation with the private sector. A new partnership must be forged between policymakers and the high-tech community, which generally has better intelligence about information-network threats than does the government. U.S. network vulnerability is a shared problem, and there must be a shared solution.
