In accordance with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), industry is circulating a draft national cyber-incident response plan, seeking comments from the public to further President Obama’s presidential directive (PPD-41), which aims to have a final plan by 2017. The PPD was created to help the federal government coordinate with the private sector when responding to cyber-attacks, focusing on a “unit of effort” from the federal government and “shared responsibility.” While the introduction of PPD-41 has sparked some industry concerns, including too much government oversight and a lack of clarity on what constitutes a national response, the government’s first cyber-attack response manual marks just another example of President Obama’s recent focus on cybersecurity as part of the Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP).
