Government to consult businesses on e-crime policy | Security | ZDNet UK. 1st July 2010

I found this assertion that private businesses know more about cybersecurity than government quite disturbing. It sounds more ideological than the result of an informed and reasoned decision.

If they are thinking of business dealing with cybersecurity, such as the big firms of F-secure, Sophos etc…, yes, it is a good move. But if they are thinking than most small private businesses are security-aware, it is forgetting that many simply have no IT budget, or an IT budget insufficient to secure data, and that in e-commerce, that is where the problems lie.
