ISA to Testify Before Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity
Larry Clinton, President and CEO of the Internet Security Alliance (ISA), will be appearing before the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies of the House Committee on Homeland Security.
The hearing will take place on June 24, 2011 at 10:00am in Room 311 of the Cannon House Office Building.
ISA represents major corporations from the Aviation, Banking, Communications, Defense, Education, Financial Services Insurance, Manufacturing, Technology and Security industries. ISA’s mission is to integrate advanced technology with economics and public policy to create a sustainable system of cyber security.
ISA has articulated its pro-market approach to cyber security through the two editions of its “Cyber Security Social Contract.” When the Obama Administration released its own policy paper for cyber security, the Cyberspace Policy Review, the first document it quoted was the ISA Social Contract.
In fact, the Administration’s Executive Summary both begins and ends by citing the ISA, and more than a dozen ISA white papers are cited in the Administration’s policy review - far more than any other source.
In 2009, the U.S. State Department sent Larry to Estonia to brief the NATO Cyber Security Center of Excellence on the ISA Social Contract model. In addition to the Social Contract model, ISA has also taken on other projects to address cyber security from an enterprise-wide, risk management perspective. ISA’s two most recent publications on this topic are: “The Financial Management of Cyber Risk,” and “50 Questions Every CFO should be asking about Cyber Security.
Mr. Clinton is a resonating voice on cybersecurity issues. He has been featured in mass media such as USA Today, the PBS News Hour, the Morning Show on CBS, Fox News, CNN, C-SPAN and CNBC.
He has also authored numerous professional journal articles on cyber security and was a guest editor for the Cutter IT Journal. As someone who can speak the language of Capitol Hill, he is regularly called upon to testify before both the U.S. House and Senate.
The topic of the subcommittee hearing is: Examining the Homeland Security Impact of the Obama Administration’s Cybersecurity Proposal. Mr. Clinton will be available for comment before and at the conclusion of the committee hearing. To schedule a time to speak with him call (703) 907-7090.
