The 182-page Cyberspace Solarium Commission report is chock-full of details around recommendations, some of which have been circulated for as long as cybersecurity has been a policy area. The commission’s report has received generally positive reviews from industry.
“Not everyone will like every recommendation the Commission produced, but our hope is that the report will create a sense of urgency for Congress to take meaningful, bipartisan action in this arena,” said Tommy Ross, Senior Director, Policy at BSA | The Software Alliance. “The Cyberspace Solarium Commission has produced serious, forward-leaning recommendations that would, collectively, help the United States Government and U.S. critical infrastructure better defend against advanced cyber threats.”
