Abstract

The Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force Green Paper on Cybersecurity, Innovation and the Internet Economy recommends consideration of a new framework for addressing internet security issues for companies outside the orbit of critical infrastructure or key resources. While securing energy, financial, health and other resources remain vital, the future of the innovation and the economy will depend on the success of Internet companies and ensuring that these companies are trusted and secure is essential. The report recommends that the U.S. government and stakeholders come together to promote security standards to address emerging issues. It also proposes that the government continue to support both innovation in security and on the Internet more broadly. This framework will both improve security at home and around the world so that Internet services can continue to provide a vital connection for trade and commerce, civic participation, and social interaction around the globe.
