Promoting Cyber Security

The Heritage Foundation seems to be doing as much as anyone toward bringing about orderly procedures for maintaining the security and functionality of cyberspace. It has now issued a lobbying paper on the subject: “A Congressional Guide: Seven Steps to U.S. Security, Prosperity, and Freedom In Cyberspace.”

Heritage divides cyber threats into three fairly obvious categories: Cyber crime, cyber espionage and cyber warfare. It sees cooperative activity, rather than regulation, as the best approach to keeping computer networks functional. That seems to make a lot of sense, provided that such cooperation can be reliably promoted and maintained.
