U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke Announces Initiative to Keep Internet Open for Innovation and Trade at Cybersecurity Forum

Description

Gary Locke spoke at a Cybersecurity Forum and discussed what the Commerce Department is doing to protect itself against cyber attacks. He notes that some of the most common attacks are "data breaches, malware, ID theft and spam."

The Commerce Department launched an Internet Policy Task Force in April 2010 and is set to make policy recommendations to the Administration after consulting with the public. He uses Hilary Clinton's speech as an example of how the current administration believes in low censorship and high online freedoms.

Concerned citizens interested in public policy discussions can find events at the Commerce Department website Policymakers can also attend discussions to gain insight on public opinion and involvement.
