"Public-Private Partnership: The ISP Role in Fighting Malware"
Howard Schmidt, Cybersecurity Coordinator for the Obama Administration
Cameron Kerry, General Counsel, U.S. Department of Commerce
Michael O’Reirdan, Chairman, Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group
James Barnett, Jr., Chief, Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, Federal Communications Commission (invited)
Kate Dean, Executive Director, U.S. Internet Service Provider Association (invited)
Bruce McConnell, Counselor to the Deputy Under Secretary for National Protection and Programs Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Ari Schwartz, Internet Policy Advisor, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Maxim Weinstein, President & Executive Director, StopBadware
James A. Lewis, Director and Senior Fellow, CSIS Technology and Public Policy Program
The event will mark the launch of the new U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Department of Homeland Security effort to promote the creation of a voluntary industry code of conduct to address the detection, notification, and mitigation of botnets. Over the past several years, botnets have increasingly put computer owners at risk. A botnet infection can lead to the monitoring of a consumer’s personal information and communication, and exploitation of that consumer’s computing power and Internet access. Networks of these compromised computers are often used to disseminate spam, to store and transfer illegal content, and to attack the servers of government and private entities with massive, distributed denial of service attacks. The Departments seek public comment from all Internet stakeholders, including the commercial, academic, and civil society sectors, on potential models for detection, notification, prevention, and mitigation of botnets’ illicit use of computer equipment.
