    By Mary Anne Ostrom and Elise Ackerman

    Sept. 15, 2002
    Using Silicon Valley as the backdrop, the White House this week will
    unveil its most comprehensive plan yet to protect the nation's
    computer users from cyberattacks.
    Industry officials who have seen drafts of the plan and White House
    briefing documents describe a strategy that will rely heavily on
    voluntary efforts of home computer users and employers and sets new
    security standards for government agencies, which have been roundly
    criticized for ignoring computer security.
    The new blueprint for computer security will be presented Wednesday at
    Stanford University by Richard Clarke, the Bush administration's top
    cybersecurity officer, and FBI Director Robert Mueller, among others.
    The wide-ranging report, months in the works, comes exactly one week
    after the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. It calls on ``all
    Americans to secure their portions of cyberspace.''
