BSA | The Software Alliance hosted an event that detailed Pillar 3 of the National Cyber Strategy with members of ONCD and the Federal CIO outlining among other ideas, two approaches to address liability and create a safe harbor.
The BSA event on Wednesday focused on pillar three of the national cyber strategy. Nick Leiserson participated in a panel with Mitch Herckis, director of federal cybersecurity at the Office of the Federal CIO and moderator Henry Young of BSA.
BSA’s Craig Albright moderated a high-level discussion on the strategy with Anjana Rajan, assistant national cyber director for technology security.
The ONCD is particularly interested in regulatory harmonization, Leiserson said, and “to change the conversation” to also include reciprocity. Part of this work involves discussions with international partners, Leiserson said, pointing specifically to the European Union’s Cyber Resilience Act and the General Data Protection Regulation as starting opportunities.
However, Leiserson said it’s important for the U.S. to get “its house in order” first and have a model that is informed by industry to make implementation easy. Leiserson said it’s possible to have “lower compliance costs while getting better security outcomes” and that’s “what we should be driving toward.”
