Senator puts private-public info sharing at center of cyber debate

Cybersecurity is one of the top priorities for the state of Maryland, said Sen. Benjamin Cardin at an Aug. 18 town hall meeting, according to FCW.

Cardin, who supported an amendment this year to make the U.S. Cyber Command more autonomous, also called for the development of technology to manage cybersecurity threats.

Increased confidence between the public and private sector and information sharing would encourage business for cybersecurity growth, FCW quoted Cardin as saying.

While the amendment Cardin supported to make USCYBERCOM its own combatant command is stalled in the Senate, reports show the White House may also support the idea, FCW said.
