The Commerce Department’s Internet Policy Task Force is asking for comments on a report that proposes voluntary codes of conduct to bolster the cybersecurity of companies that depend on the Internet to do business, but are not included in the critical-infrastructure sector.

The report, Cybersecurity, Innovations and the Internet Economy, focuses on the “Internet and Information Innovation Sector” (I3S)“” businesses that range from small and medium enterprises and bricks-and-mortar firms with online services, to social networking sites and Internet-only business, to cloud computing firms.

The Internet Policy Task Force was created in April 2010 to identify and address the Internet’s most pressing policy issues and to recommend new policies. Its one area of responsibility involves establishing practices, norms and ground rules that promote innovative uses of information in four challenging areas: enhancing Internet privacy, improving cybersecurity, protecting intellectual property and encouraging the global, free flow of information.

A June 15, 2011, Federal Register notice requests comments on the task force report by Aug 1, 2011. Comments should be emailed to [email protected] with the subject line ”Comments on Cybersecurity Green Paper.” The task force will continue to work with government partners to engage the domestic and global privacy community, and will consider publishing a refined set of policy recommendations in the future.
