Parry Aftab, blogging on the McAfee Security Insights Blog, gives a quick history on the Internet Safety Task Force that was, well, taken to task because of its corporate funding partners (See Jan 25 post). She says further research is in the future:
The ISTTF is the first task force of its kind in the United States. And, although it may not have provided major new findings, it did get things jump-started. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) working group will be announced very shortly and hopefully one under the guidance of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will be compiled. The Attorneys General are seeking more concrete recommendations and an action plan. And the members of the ISTTF are looking for the opportunity to provide those concrete recommendations.
A journey, not a destination…we need to remember that.
