Public Knowledge Commends FCC On Cybersecurity Plan

The following is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director of Public Knowledge:

 

"FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski this morning proposed a reasonable, voluntary approach to cybersecurity that will require cooperation from Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and their customers."

 

"We were particularly pleased to see the chairman defend that the open nature of the Internet as a 'guiding principle' not to be compromised in the pursuit of tighter security.  Similarly, we applaud his strong advocacy of consumer privacy as essential to any security policy.

 

"We welcome this multi-stakeholder approach, and believe voluntary participation from the Internet community of providers and consumers will result in a stronger Internet for everyone without compromising the open Internet everyone values and which has been a 'critical ingredient' to the Internet's success at creating jobs and broadening participation in our civic life."
