Michael Daniel: White House Unveils Cybersecurity Standardization Framework

1 min read

cybersecurityThe White House has unveiled a strategy that calls for U.S. government, commercial and academic organizations to participate in the development of international standards to strengthen resilience and security of critical data and networks.

Michael Daniel, the White House’s cybersecurity coordinator, wrote in a blog entry posted Wednesday that the framework supports international efforts to establish technical measures for the protection of online commerce and banking, medical network and smart electric metering applications.

The Obama administration believes “a consensus-based, private sector-driven international standards development process, with input from all interested stakeholders, is superior to a top-down, national government-controlled approach to standards,” Daniel stated.

He added a federal working group explained the approach in the “Interagency Report on Strategic U.S. Government Engagement in International Standardization to Achieve U.S. Objectives for Cybersecurity” and a supplementary document.

The group plans to collaborate with industry in 2016 to implement recommendations outlined in the report.
