ISA President Larry Clinton Discusses Cybersecurity Legislation

Monday, May 07, 2012

Internet Security Alliance (ISA) president Larry Clinton will be interviewed on National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” on Tuesday, May 8th.

Clinton will be discussing the possible implications of cybersecurity legislation initiatives currently under consideration by Congress.

Clinton has led ISA since 2007, and is frequently called upon to offer expert testimony and guidance to Congress, the White House, and numerous Federal Agencies on policy and legislative efforts.

The interview will air at either 20 past the hour or 40 past the hour depending on when the show is broadcast in your area. Broadcast times for specific regions can be accessed here.

The Internet Security Alliance (ISA) is a unique multi-sector trade association which provides thought leadership and strong public policy advocacy as well as business and technical services to its membership.

The ISA represents enterprises from the aviation, banking, communications, defense, education, financial services, insurance, manufacturing, security, and technology industries.

ISA’s mission is to integrate advanced technology with the realistic business needs of its members and enlightened public policy to create a sustained system of cyber security.

Clinton also recently sat for an extensive interview with Richard Schlesinger, correspondent for CBS Evening News and EMC, addressing the cyber bills in Congress and how and why regulation will not effectively address the nation's cyber security problems.


Private sector advocates such as Clinton believe some of the current legislation under consideration is far too punitive in nature, and would disincentivize companies from both investing in better security measures and from disclosing data loss events.

“There's really no doubt that they have proposed here developing a fairly extensive regulatory structure and again that is precisely the opposite of what the president himself promised when he released the cyberspace policy review back in 2009," Clinton stated during a taping of C-SPAN's "The Communicators" which aired last August.
