Cyber Security Commission Compiling Recommendations for the Next U.S. Presidency

During a panel discussion at the Black Hat conference, four members from a U.S. private organization called "Commission on Cyber Security for the 44th Presidency," established by Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), sought input from the security community as part of their mandate to "develop recommendations for a comprehensive strategy to improve cyber security in federal systems and in critical infrastructure".

"The CSIS panel is composed mostly of industry, government, and ex-government types. Among the other members: Mary Ann Davidson, Oracle's chief security officer; Doug Maughan, a Homeland Security program manager; Will Pelgrin of New York's cybersecurity office; Phil Reitinger, a Microsoft security strategist; and Amit Yoran, chairman of NetWitness and a former Homeland Security official," reports Declan McCullagh. "The commission plans to publish the final report in 'early November' and, perhaps, an earlier draft for public comment."

Cyber Security members who spoke at the Black Hat conference on Wednesday were Tom Kellermann of Core Security Technologies, Marcus Sachs, Verizon's director of national security policy, Jerry Dixon, director of analysis at Team Cymru, and Peter Allor, an IBM security program manager.
