  2. What role(s) do or should national/international standards and organizations that develop national/international standards play in critical infrastructure cybersecurity conformity assessment?

  3. Critical to the centralized coordination of technical infrastructure is the cost model used. How can costs be managed to support compliance and good practice rather than hinder the uptake?

  4. How do you reach critical mass as quickly as possible while ensuring that the transition from traditional commerce activities to Electronic Commerce activities is as smooth as possible?

  5. What is the nature of the physical and procedural infrastructure for the protection of cryptographic material and information (e.g., storage, accounting and audit, logistics support)?

  6. How does cyber security fit into the debate over protection of critical infrastructure, and how can the pieces of the puzzle that require the highest level of attention be identified?

  7. What are the implementation issues associated with using cybersecurity technologies for critical infrastructure protection, including policy issues as privacy and information sharing?

  8. How do you support the needs of legacy, business critical applications, and provide flexible infrastructure to support new virtual machine-based applications or a migration to SaaS?

  9. How best do you protect your most important assets by allocating the right financial, hardware, software and people resources to your organizations cybersecurity infrastructure?
