PROSECUTOR SAYS HACK ATTACKS MUST BE REPORTED

Source: Security Wire Digest

Posted on April 22, 2002

      Companies need to come forward and admit when they've been hacked, urged U.S. prosecutor David Green at Microsoft's Government Leaders' Conference last week.

      So long as companies fail to report attacks, the government will be limited in its ability to find culprits and bring them to justice, said Green, the principal deputy chief of the Department of Justice's computer crime division. "We have to make the reporting of these attacks the norm. We need corporate cooperation to report these sorts of vulnerabilities to law enforcement in order that they are able to deal with it," he told delegates, according to a published report.

      A key, he added, is creating a public-private partnership that promotes trust and honors confidentiality. Congress is currently considering legislation that would exempt security information shared with the government from the Freedom of Information Act.
