The United States Cybersecurity Solarium Commission (CSC) was formed in 2019 to “develop a consensus on a strategic approach to defending the United States in cyberspace against cyber-attacks of significant consequences.”
The CSC published their report to the public on March 11, 2020. The report consists of more than 80 recommendations and more than 50 legislative proposals. Vigilant Ops recently sponsored a webinar during which a summary of the report and potential impacts on the medical device industry was presented. The summary from that webinar can be found here.
The CSC report has been making an impact, with several cybersecurity proposals from the report advancing in both the US House of Representatives and Senate. Some experts are optimistic that most of these legislative proposals will make it into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which sets the budget and expenditures for US military.
Since the publishing of the final report, the Cybersecurity Solarium Commission has released other material, including a white paper titled “Cybersecurity Lessons from the Pandemic.” The white paper reinforces the recommendations from the final report and adds a few new recommendations as well. Vigilant Ops has drafted a summary of that CSC white paper, which can be found here.
