Come March 11 the Congressionally chartered Cyberspace Solarium Commission will issue an estimated 75 recommendations—including to streamline Congressional oversight and for industry to provide incident reporting—most of which will be accompanied by legislative language, according to the commission’s top staffer.
“A little less than 50 of the 75 recommendations have congressional action required,” said Mark Montgomery, executive director of the commission. “We’ve written legislative proposals, whether it’s a line in, line out amendment to a bill or a straight bill, so that the four congressional leaders can take them into their home [committees] and begin to work that legislation right into law."
Montgomery spoke along with Rep. Jim Langevin, D-R.I., a commission member and chairman of a House Armed Services Committee panel on emerging technology, at an event hosted by BSA | The Software Alliance.
