This morning I was pursuing my LinkedIn connections, as I do every morning, actually several times a day. One of my connections posted an article that was recently published by the AFCEA Signal Online edition. http://www.afcea.org/content/?q=node/13619 The article speaks to DHS, SAFETY Act and the potential for litigation. Below is a brief excerpt: "The framework signals the risk of cyber attacks, but it also opens the argument for claiming organizations did not take reasonable care of duty to protect their assets. Dismas Locaria, partner, Venable LLP, explains, “Negligence lawsuits stem out of a reasonable duty to protect against harm.” The SAFETY Act’s existence encouraged companies to bring to market the counterterrorism technologies the government and others need amid fear after 9/11 that, in another attack, they could be liable for tens of millions of dollars if their capabilities had problems. Fast-forward a few years and cybersecurity has become a significant concern for the government, especially as enemies a world away can reach into networks to wreak havoc. Entities need to firm defenses, and one method is through regulation." What is the feeling in the community about adoption of the Framework and what is your personal opinion?
