Commerce needs help managing the Internet
Monday - 8/9/2010, 8:30am EDT
- The Commerce Department is looking to the private sector for help managing the internet. The new Internet Policy Task Force has filed two of four inquiries with the Federal Register asking for advice from industry, academia and others impacted by online commerce. The Washington Post reports the government is looking to update its approach to online commerce for the first time since 1997. However, critics say rules can't keep pace with technology, and suggest more time be spent on education and creating better software.

- White House cyber coordinator Howard Schmidt says using secure identity cards and working more closely with industry among his top short term priorities. He says a new strategy to secure online transactions also is on track for the President's signature this fall. And he's closely watching Capitol Hill as Senate lawmakers may be close to completing draft of consolidated cyber bill.
