President Obama signs executive order for information sharing (video)At a cybersecurity summit at Stanford University, President Barack Obama signs an order calling for standards and processes for government and companies to share information in the fight against hacks and cybercrimes.
I'm signing a new Executive Order to promote even more information sharing about cyber threats both within the private sector and between government and the private sector. And it will encourage more companies and industries to set up organizations, hubs, so you can share information with each other. It'll call for a common set of standards. Including protections for privacy and civil liberties, so the government can share threat information with these hubs more easily. And, it can help make it easier for companies to get the classified cyber security threat information that they need to protect their companies.

[LAUGH] I don't mean everybody in the audience, I mean. [LAUGH] Thank you very much everybody. [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC]
