Treasury Department Report to the President on Cybersecurity Incentives Pursuant to Executive Order 13636
United States. Department of the Treasury
"On February 12, 2013, President Obama signed Executive Order 13636, 'Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.' The Executive Order establishes a policy of enhancing the security and resilience of the nation's critical infrastructure and maintaining a cyber-environment that encourages efficiency and innovation while, importantly, protecting privacy and civil rights. It provides for all Federal agencies and departments to take appropriate steps to secure our critical infrastructure, in advance of any legislative action. In addition, the Executive Order outlines the terms of a partnership with owners and operators of critical infrastructure to improve information sharing and collaboratively develop and implement risk-based standards. […] This report outlines an approach for policymakers to evaluate the benefits and relative effectiveness of government incentives in promoting the adoption of the eventual Framework. It seeks to identify types of situations in which private incentives may be insufficient to provide an appropriate level of cybersecurity. Then, the report reviews a set of seven potential policy options, in areas where the Treasury Department has significant experience or expertise, that could be used as incentives to encourage the voluntary adoption of the Framework. These policy solutions, while targeted at critical infrastructure organizations, might also be applicable to a broader group of private sector participants."
