“Securing cyberspace is an extraordinarily difficult strategic challenge that requires a coordinated and focused effort from our entire society.”       ... President George W. Bush

The Challenge...

Information technology is fundamental to the functioning of our industries, government institutions and national defense, yet is fraught with risk. Managing that risk presents a constant challenge. We must build and maintain our information technology infrastructure so as to maintain:

      Confidentiality - sensitive or private information must not be available to unauthorized individuals

      Integrity - information must not be inappropriately altered or erased

      Availability - information and services must be available when needed

The Response...
