White House pushes cybersecurity framework for critical infrastructure

Internet Security Alliance President Larry Clinton praised the framework but said more action is needed.

"In Olympic terms, today marks the end of the preliminary rounds, we are on the right track but we haven't won any gold medals for cybersecurity yet," Clinton said by email.
