The Obama administration today made it clear that it sees the fight 
against cybercrime and cyberattacks as a global effort that requires 
international cooperation in defining the norms of online behavior and 
consistently enforcing unlawful activities.

National cybersecurity coordinator Howard Schmidt -- along with Homeland 
Security Adviser John Brennan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 
Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke, 
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, and Deputy Secretary of 
Defense Bill Lynn -- today unveiled the U.S.'s first-ever international 
strategy for cybersecurity and cyberspace.

"The International Strategy is a historic policy document for the 21st 
Century -- one that explains, for audiences at home and abroad, what the 
U.S. stands for internationally in cyberspace, and how we plan to build 
prosperity, enhance security, and safeguard openness in our increasingly 
networked world," Schmidt said in a blog post announcing the document.

The new policy comes on the heels of the administration's proposed new 
cybersecurity legislation that would improve the protection of critical 
infrastructure, expand the sharing of security data, and impose national 
requirements for disclosing breaches.
