RSA 2013: Will Obama's Executive Order on Cybersecurity Lead to More Data Sharing?

Experts say yes, but the relationship between the public and private sectors may not be perfect.

Security experts at this year’s RSA Conference were optimistic that President Obama’s Executive Order on Cybersecurity would lead to more data sharing between public and private enterprises, but they weren’t sure how great the quality of the exchanges would be.

For one, government often chooses to keep a wealth of information confidential, leaving private-sector partners in the dark. Also, there are often questions in these situations as to what information should be shared, to whom, how often things should be shared, and in what format.
