What is new, is the acknowledgement that cybersecurity should be high priority for every individual, company, and government entity. While DHS's involvement in cybersecurity is a step in the right direction, more measures need to be put in place that facilitates collaboration across industries and government entities. For example, to measure the nation's cyber security efforts there needs to be a diverse membership comprised of federal and state regulators with responsibility for oversight of publicly/privately owned facilities, privately owned and operated suppliers, crisis-level and regional management authorities, and other parties. The membership should be familiar with the International Standards Organization (ISO) standards, and in every case, experienced with implementation and auditing organizations and facilities that have chosen to adopt voluntary, standards-based management systems. This membership should have interests conforming to the voluntary frameworks exemplified in the Plan-Do-Check-Act models common to quality, environmental, health, safety and security standards of the ISO"--
