EDS responds to draft version of National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.

Nationwide Effort to Secure America's Cyberspace

EDS recently submitted to the President's Critical Infrastructure Protection Board its review of the draft report of the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.

The draft report, issued in September, is the first national effort to bring together businesses, government agencies, universities and individuals to make cyberspace a safer place in which to communicate and do business.

While recent attacks against the Internet Domain Name Service underscored the continuing threat to American cyberspace as well as the level of risk civilized societies must face, those same cyber attacks also demonstrated the resilience of the Internet structure, EDS said.

"A national strategy to secure cyberspace is clearly needed," Terry Milholland, EDS senior vice president, chief information officer and chief technology office, wrote. "The National Strategy represents a significant advance in securing the future of the digital economy."

The company's response followed a detailed analysis of the far-reaching plan by EDS cyber security experts, EDS Fellows and other corporate thought leaders.

EDS, a global services company, provides strategy, implementation, business transformation and operational solutions for clients managing the business and technology complexities of the digital economy.
