A True Public Private Partnership

The US Army Research Laboratory has teamed up with private sector cybersecurity experts and the world of academia to come up with the most cutting edge practices, while managing a shrinking budget. The Research Lab has taken a realistic approach to what they can accomplish on their own, and decided to merge the inventiveness and research skills of the academic world, and the drive of the private sector, with the authority of the DoD, to create a cybersecurity super team. The US Army Research Lab hopes that by setting this cooperative example, others will follow. And that kind of cooperative trend could help thwart future incidents like the Target breach, and the Heartbleed Bug. http://www.federaltimes.com/article/20140507/CYBER/305070012/DoD-private-sector-collaborate-cybersecurity-best-practices
