The Business Roundtable, composed of the CEOs of 160 large U.S. companies,
said neither the government nor the private sector has a coordinated plan
to respond to an attack, natural disaster or other disruption of the
Internet. While individual government agencies and companies have their
own emergency plans in place, little coordination exists between the
groups, according to the study.

"It's a matter of more clearly defining who has responsibility," said
Edward Rust Jr., CEO of State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co., who
leads the Roundtable's Internet-security effort.


Thus explainith why CEOs should not be responsible for this. I wonder if their CIOs or other techies have ever tried to explain the concept of a "CERT" to them.
