Overview: The National Cyber Security Partnership (NCSP) is led by the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA), TechNet and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in partnership with academicians, CEOs, federal government agencies and industry experts. Following the release of the 2003 White House National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace and the National Cyber Security Summit, the Partnership was established to develop shared strategies and programs to better secure and enhance America's critical information infrastructure. The Partnership established five task forces comprising individuals from industry, academia and government. The task forces are: awareness for home users and small businesses; cyber security early warning; corporate governance; security across the software development life cycle; and technical standards and common criteria. The task forces will be releasing separate work products beginning in March 2004 and ending in April 2004.
