Experts say it doesn't matter if IT is classified because requirements will be passed on to them by the utility, telecom or defense manufacturer

However, Rosenzweig believes the government's approach through frameworks and legislation is wrong. He favors a non-regulatory strategy that would include information sharing, creation of a civil liability regime, better education, more international engagement and a methodology for certifying hardware components.

"For me, the government shouldn't be responsible for creating the framework," said Rosenzweig, who is also a visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Instead, Rosenzweig favors a private sector institution building a framework that is based on common law and is a "product of the market, not of a government fiat."
