New Level of Internet Security from White House

The updated and advanced technologies acquired by United States is the major factor that keeps the nation few steps ahead from rest of the world always. The present internet age has made even a small country to concentrate on protecting their confidential information from being published on some wiki websites. The country takes the lead on security aspects from all directions from home security systems like ADT Security Services to most advance anti-virus application we have high-end gadgets to fulfill its purpose. But the actual question is, when it comes to Cyber Security, where does united nation stand? We didn't have clear answer for this question until The President of United States announced the operation of top-level government organization in the White House dedicated to Cyber Security functions and initiatives. This new department will be apparently aimed at protecting the country's information network and infrastructure.

The new office would be led by an appointed special advisor, to be called the Cyber security Coordinator. He would be part of the National Security Staff. The new office would be tasked to produce and manage national strategies for boosting, strengthening, and improving computer defenses. The proposed Cyber security Coordinator's office would work together with the Office of Management and Budget in keeping federal bodies maintain focus in keeping up national cyber security posture.

The cyber security czar would be vested specific powers and authorities. Aside from being an adviser to the president, the cyber security coordinator would also gain full backing from the Office of the President. He would have an extraordinary and guaranteed access to the president especially when there are critical issues about Internet security challenges. If cyber attacks would transpire, the coordinator would also emerge to manage appropriate and needed government response.

The creation of the new office is expected to be a pioneer in cyber security practices in global countries. At present, almost all developed and developing nations are recognizing the need for concrete Internet security measures. However, governments are yet to institute organizations and agencies that would be specifically tasked to handle online security measures and issues. The US is again leading the pack. It is expected that sooner, other countries would aggressively follow suit. Many regions are also acting together to identify common cyber threats and issues. In the coming few years, more measures are expected to address urgent IT security concerns.

The President administration's move is expected to serve as a model for other national governments in addressing security problems across the virtual world. The US move is seen as a proof of commitment to the overall online security of national networks and individuals and businesses computer systems. Among the immediate and actual priorities of the initiative are creation of national strategies, establishment of frameworks for unified responses to cyber incidents, promotion of national awareness about cyber security, development of strong relationships between public and private sectors, and bolstering of research and development regarding cyber security.

President only acted on the vital calls for advanced Internet security. In US alone, millions of dollars are now being lost annually due to cyber crimes. Many individuals and businesses are being defrauded across the online media. The move to create a cyber security office is aligned with a vision to treat digital infrastructure as an important national asset. Thus, protection of IT infrastructure across the US would be a top national security priority, no less. The Cyber security Coordinator's Office would always ensure networks are resilient, trustworthy, and highly secured.

However, there are restrictions to US cyber security measures. President asserted that cyber security pursuits of the government would not include monitoring of Internet traffic and of private sector's networks. The government still aims to protect and preserve civil liberties and personal privacy that Americans very much cherish. Commitment to neutrality the President mentioned that the nation would leave online media as it should always be: free and very much open.

Being a freelancer and active blogger I like to share my thoughts and ideas with rest of the world. Even though there are tools and devices like ADT Security Services to protect one from possible physical or financial damage from criminals, the real security is in the hands of government and its new department when it comes to data security in the virtual world. Hope the Cyber Security Division delivers its purpose aptly and innovatively.
