DHS launches 3-tier cyber strategy
Monday - 3/28/2011, 7:01pm EDT
The idea is based on automation, interoperability and authentication. DHS hopes this 3-tier approach could make networks more secure.
Fierce Government IT reports DHS's new strategy draws heavily on an immune-system analogy saying cybersecurity should become a matter of "automated courses of action" in which devices sense malicious actors and enact defensive responses on their own.
The report also calls for the creation of a "Cyber Center for Disease Control and Prevention," The Cyber CDC would watch for threats and incidents, disseminate data, perform threat analysis, make recommendations and coordinate preventive actions.
