Government Coordination With Computer Incident Response Teams Becoming 'Essential', Says New Paper

In a press release, New America said that leading cybersecurity experts have observed that there's a "disconnect" between the technology and policy communities in recent months. It also noted that there's a need for multiple groups to meet and discuss "critical tensions" in this area.

"For these reasons and more, we hope that this report will help provide policy-makers with a better understanding of the underlying principles and culture that are the foundation of the technical incident response community," Robert Morgus, one or the paper's authors and a research associate with New America's Open Technology Institute, said in the release. "The technical CSIRT community, part of which is becoming increasingly embedded in government structures, is a natural place to begin fostering this understanding."
