“Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Thursday asserted cybersecurity is a civilian domain, not a military battlefield or private sector jurisdiction, as some critics of federal cyber policy have argued.

‘Some categorize the challenge as one for the market, or a looming war,’ she said at a forum hosted by Nextgov’s parent company, Atlantic Media. ‘In my view, cyberspace is fundamentally a civilian space, and government has a role to help protect it, in partnership with the private sector and across the globe … both the market and the battlefield analogies are the wrong ones to use.'”
