DHS increases access to research
Tuesday - 9/7/2010, 8:30am EDT
- The Homeland Security Department wants to make its data stores on cyber security available to more researchers. It has revised the forms by which researchers apply to receive the data, and is seeking comments on the new forms. NextGov reports, the forms and the research support a program called PREDICT. That stands for Protected Repository for the Defense of Infrastructure Against Cyber Threats. Eligible researchers, who must maintain confidentiality of the data, come from industry and academia. DHS wants to streamline the process for getting researchers and data together.
- The Defense Department is spending more than 3 billion dollars annually on IT to secure networks against incoming cyber attacks. But it spends far fewer dollars to protect against outgoing compromising data from insiders, a situation one professor calls incredibly asymmetrical. Paul A. Strassmann is a Distinguished Professor of Information Sciences at George Mason University, and he spoke with Chris Dorobek on the DorobekInsider. Also, with all the potential leaks and breaches that come with social networking tools, like Facebook and Twitter, do the dangers outweigh the benefits for the Defense Department? Professor Strassmann says it's all about balance.
