FCC chmn Tom Wheeler

FCC chmn Tom Wheeler wants the country’s infrastructure companies, including ISPs, to step up to boost cybersecurity. In a speech to the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) Wed, he said “if critically-positioned companies just comply reactively with a regime of prescribed mandatory requirements then our networks will always be a step behind…We need a solution that allows companies to move faster as well, both for their own good, and for the good of the nation.” He made it clear that a cybersecurity compliance checklist isn’t the right answer for cyber risk management, according to a copy of his speech. “Rather, I want companies to develop a dynamic strategy that can be both more effective and more adaptive than a traditional prescriptive regulatory approach.”
