Third draft expected Friday
What was the National Strategy for Secure Online Transactions has become the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace. While the focus of the group hasn’t changed the name change is supposed to narrow the scope of the organization to make its focus more clear, according to DC insiders.
A draft of the report is expected to be released Friday on the White House website. The report will be set into two volumes, one detailing the strategy and another detailing the implementation plan. After being release there will be a three week comment period.
This will be the third draft of the plan, with the previous two having been circulated among industry executives with their comments taken into account.
The group’s plan is to have the strategy completed and signed by President Obama around September/October.
