White House crafting cybersecurity plan 

By Bara Vaida, National Journal's Technology Daily 

White House cybersecurity adviser Richard Clarke said Tuesday that the
Bush administration continues to work on a new national plan for
cybersecurity, and is planning to make it more "dynamic" with the input
of high-tech CEOs.

He said the Bush administration plan would be updated continuously to
reflect the advent of new technologies.

"President Bush said we need a national strategy and to make sure it was
written by all the stakeholders," Clarke said in a luncheon address to a
U.S. Chamber of Commerce conference on cybersecurity. "It will change as
the threats change and as the technology changes. It can't be updated
just once a year." 

Clarke said Bush issued the directive in May this year at a Cabinet
briefing on cybersecurity and had planned a formal introduction on Oct.
1, even before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Clarke said the Cabinet also agreed in May that one person within the
White House should be dedicated to cybersecurity, and Bush wanted
industry sector CEOs involved in building the plans. The Cabinet then
agreed there should be a critical infrastructure board to oversee
government computer security, as well as a national infrastructure
council that would be made up of private-sector CEOs. 

Clarke said he will be part of fiscal year 2003 budget planning to
ensure that government agencies have the money they need to implement
computer security measures. Clarke said there is a "myth" among critics
that because he does not have budget authority, he will not be able to
achieve his cyber-security goals.

Clarke said he agreed with a congressional report card released Friday
that gave the federal government a failing grade for computer security.
He disagreed, however, with an assessment that the Defense Department
deserved an F. He said the No. 1 way for government agencies to bolster
their security is to comply with existing regulations requiring the
agencies to secure their computer networks.

"There is only one thing we need to do, and that is enforce the law. We
have good regulations, and they are being ignored," Clarke said when
asked the top four actions government agencies could do to improve their
