Chapter 9: Launching a National Cyberspace Security Awareness and Training Program

 < Day Day Up > 


Creating a culture of security was the title of a presentation made by Federal Trade Commission (FTC) commissioner Orson Swindle at the Privacy 2002: Information, Security, and New Global Realities conference in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 26, 2002. In this presentation Swindle stated, 'Starting with ourselves, we must convince our families, friends, colleagues, and employees why computer security is important. I strongly urge corporate executives, educators, business managers, and community leaders to take the lead. It's simply the right thing to do. Get the word around in your circle of influence.'

This chapter covers activities that have occurred, as well as work that needs to be done, to meet the goals of priority III, which is to develop and foster participation in a national cyberspace security awareness and training effort. An organization should take or be prepared to take the following steps:

  1. Participate in a comprehensive national awareness program to help enable businesses, the general workforce, and the general population to secure their own parts of cyberspace.

  2. Improve in-house training and education programs to support the national cybersecurity needs.

  3. Accept and have staff participate in private-sector supported and widely recognized professional cybersecurity certifications.
