|| Top Security Officers Form Think Tank
A group of top security officers from some of the industry's largest companies announced Wednesday that they are banding together to form a new global security think tank.
The Global CSO Council includes Howard Schmidt, chief information security officer at eBay Inc. and the former top cybersecurity adviser to the president; Mary Ann Davidson, CSO of Oracle Corp.; Scott Charney, chief security strategist at Microsoft Corp.; Vint Cerf, vice president of technology strategy at MCI and co-designer of the TCP/IP protocol that underlies the Internet; and Whitfield Diffie, vice president and fellow at Sun Microsystems Inc. and the inventor of public-key encryption.
The new council is teaming with Carnegie Mellon University's new CyLab, as well. The lab will serve as the council's executive secretariat and will help the group develop policies and educate users about security. CMU plans to host a meeting of some of the CyLab's personnel and the council in January.
