Seeking Consensus on Cyberdefense

From Techonomy (2012 Tucson, AZ):

Until recently, there has been little unanimity in how to respond to cyber threats. While the Obama administration has urged companies to be more transparent about security breaches, corporate advisers often take a contrary approach, tamping down disclosure of potentially embarrassing events. The administration’s aim has been to build consensus in the business community to support legislation that regulates how companies protect the country’s critical infrastructure. The intensity  of the attacks suspected of emanating from Iran may help build resolve for cooperative action.
