Industry urges gov incentives for cyber practices

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Internet Security Alliance, TechAmerica, the Business Software Alliance and the Center for Democracy and Technology co-wrote the white paper.

PC World reports the paper was not in response to a specific government proposal.
