Obama’s National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace
In April President Obama signed the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) which charts a course for the public and private sectors to collaborate on raising the level of trust associated with identity in online transactions.
NSTIC focuses on upgrading outdated password-based authentication systems and reducing the barriers associated with identity proofing and deployment of strong credentials, while also enabling end-users to have more control over when and what information they disclose in a range of transactions.
Could someone please translate this for me?
How is giving an end-user more control over information disclosure is going to mitigate the risk of data breaches when over 300 million credit cards have already been breached?
What about online merchants vulnerabilities and better data security countermeasures for online Web services?
Will PCI DSS discover Data loss prevention technology anytime in the next decade?
Where I come from, that’s called shutting the barn-door after the horses have flown.
