Washington, DC  --  A new analysis and advocacy organization focused on enhancing cyber security announced its launch.

The Cyber Secure Institute said that it will focus on the main objectives of raising awareness of cyber threats, advocating for stronger standards, recognizing technologies that meet its standards advocating deployment of best available technologies and pushing for cyber security technologies to be independently validated against widely accepted standards.

Rob Housman, the Institute’s Executive Director, said “We formed the Cyber Secure Institute because this is a critical time for cybersecurity. The FBI reports major cyber attacks are increasing. The Chinese military has repeatedly hacked the White House’s systems. Numerous studies highlight the cyber-vulnerabilities of our critical infrastructure. Millions of Americans have had their identities stolen, their money taken and their personal information hacked. At the same time, there is a growing commitment to deal with this threat. President-elect Obama is focused on the issue. The House leadership has formed a Cybersecurity Caucus. There is an opportunity here to make a real difference.”
