phys.org: US launches voluntary cybersecurity plan

The US administration on Wednesday launched its Cybersecurity Framework, a plan aimed at protecting the nation against hackers that makes use of voluntary standards.The initiative stems from an executive order issued last year by President Barack Obama after repeated failures in Congress of a cybersecurity law.The framework allows the government to lead an information-sharing network but stops short of making mandatory the reporting of cyber threats.The goal is to protect so-called critical infrastructure, which can include power grids, water systems and financial networks against which a cyberattack could have crippling consequences.Obama said the voluntary framework “is a great example of how the private sector and government can, and should, work together to meet this shared challenge.”
