A white paper published by an unprecedented coalition of industry associations and a civil liberties group Tuesday makes cybersecurity recommendations for the Obama administration to advanced its two-year-old Cyberspace Policy Review.

The recommendations seek to impart a seven-point cybersecurity roadmap by strengthening cooperation between the public and private sectors through the combined expertise of the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the US Chamber of Commerce, the Internet Security Alliance, TechAmerica, and the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT).

“The technology industry and government agencies have proven they can work together successfully on cybersecurity,” said BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman. “The important thing now is to fully operationalize that framework. The new plan BSA and its partners are releasing today provides a how-to manual for policymakers. It builds on the strengths of both industry and government, and it details roles and responsibilities for identifying and mitigating threats.”
