The White House has a preliminary list of incentives aimed at encouraging private companies to adopt upcoming cybersecurity standards to protect critical infrastructure, Fedscoop reports.
Cory Bennett writes the National Institute of Standards and Technology has hosted workshops across the country over the past few months to gather industry feedback on a cyber framework, set for release in November.
The departments of Homeland Security, Treasury and Commerce made recommendations for the incentive program, according to the report.
Fedscoop says the agencies identified eight possible incentives in accordance with a February presidential order on cybersecurity.
Rewards include insurance, grants, technical assistance, liability protection, public recognition and streamlined regulations.
