What BSA Wants on Cyber
Politico Morning Cybersecurity, February 4, 2020
By Tim Starks
BSA | The Software Alliance released its five-item cybersecurity agenda today: secure software; strengthen supply chain security; strive toward international agreements; develop the cyber workforce; and use high-tech to bolster network defenses. That, in turn, leads to some policy prescriptions, like increasing spending on security research and coordinated vulnerability disclosure programs, expanding K-12 cybersecurity education and targeting government IT funds with cybersecurity in mind.
5G figures significantly into the agenda from the organization, whose members include tech giants like Adobe, Intel, and Oracle. BSA contends that the focus on hardware during 5G security debates gives short shrift to the role secure software can play.
