WASHINGTON, D.C., March 18, 2004 ? A new report released by the United
States Chamber of Commerce and the National Cyber Security Partnership ?
a coalition of business and technology groups ? outlined new strategies
for improving cyber security within the nation?s business community and
unveiled a guidebook specifically for small business owners.

"Cyber security is one of the most critical issues business owners
face," said Andrew Howell, Chamber vice president for homeland security.
"It is important to move industry beyond awareness of cyber security
problems to implementing solutions," said Ty Sagalow, Deputy Chief
Underwriting Officer and DBG Vice President, American International
Group, one of three Chairs of the task force that issued the report.

The guidebook, produced in conjunction with the Internet Security
Alliance, outlines what small business owners can and should do to
protect their critical high-tech infrastructure, including: not opening
emails from unknown senders, changing passwords regularly, using
anti-virus programs, installing firewalls, and closing Internet
connections when users are away from their computers.

"With nearly every small business retaining customer and employee data
on their computer systems we must protect from online fraud, theft and
security breeches," said Howard Schmidt, Chief Information Security
Office at E-Bay and Co-Chair of the task force that released the report.
"Now is the time to act and our report demonstrates the commitment of
many public and private partners to implement comprehensive awareness,"
commented Dan Caprio, Chief of Staff to Federal Trade Commissioner Orson
Swindle, the third Co-Chair.

The Partnership?s report calls on the Department of Homeland Security to
partner with employers to host information forums on cyber security, and
recommends a comprehensive national public service campaign to educate
Americans on the importance of cyber security.

The National Cyber Security Partnership seeks to harden America?s
critical information infrastructure through collaborative action.
Members include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Business Software
Alliance, the Information Technology Association of America, and

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world?s largest business federation
representing more than three million businesses and organizations of
every size, sector and region. 04-32
