A Federal Computer Week account of the June 2009 House subcommittee hearing on cybersecurity research needs included several recommendations by Secure Decisions Division head Dr. Anita D’Amico.
Northport, NY June 21, 2009 – A report appearing shortly after the House Science and Technology Committee’s Research and Science Education subcommittee hearings on cybersecurity research repeated several recommendations by Secure Decisions. The report, published by Federal Computer Week, summarized the testimony of several experts from industry and academica, concluding that all agreed upon the need for the government’s involvement in cybersecurity research, development and education programs to be expanded.
Federal Computer Week’s report highlighted several recommendations from Anita D’Amico, Director of the Secure Decisions Division of Applied Visions:
- Increased private sector involvement in the federal cybersecurity research portfolio.
- Increased federal funding for technology transition to bring results of federally funded research to market.
- Broaden the base of cybersecurity education to include more non-experts and increase involvement of the social sciences in reaching that audience.
