"From September 21-22, 2006, the President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) conducted its seventh Research and Development Exchange (RDX) Workshop entitled, International Collaboration on Cyber Security Research and Development: Leveraging Global Partnerships for the Security of Free Nations and All Sector Preparedness and Response. The purpose of the event was to stimulate an exchange of ideas among researchers, operational users, and executives from Government, industry, and academia focused on the full range of research and development (R&D) issues affecting communications and cyber networks that enable international collaboration, advance the security of free nations, and enhance preparedness and response activities across sectors. Dramatically changing business models of traditional telecommunications carriers, along with new technologies, are accelerating the advancement of global communications networks. The scale, scope, and character of the global next generation networks will revolutionize the way national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications are planned for, prioritized, and ultimately delivered. The 2006 RDX Workshop addressed the need for multilateral collaboration between key Governments, industry, and academia to enhance security on the network. Specifically, international stakeholders from these three sectors were invited to explore and prioritize issues associated with international collaboration on cyber security R&D. The goal of the event was to gather valuable information and constructive feedback, which will inform the Research and Development Task Force as it develops proposed Presidential recommendations for the NSTAC."
