ACT-IAC Issues Report on National Cyber Ideation Effort; Kenneth Allen Comments

1 min read

CyberStockThe American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council has released the findings of its recent effort to gather feedback from industry, government and academia on how to build up the nation’s cyber posture.

That national ideation initiative received more than 120 submissions that address key topics such as cybersecurity fundamentals, business-initiated vulnerabilities, response, proactive defense, threat data sharing, cyber talent, risk management and acquisition security, ACT-IAC said Wednesday.

Kenneth Allen, ACT-IAC executive director, said the ACT-IAC hopes “that the federal chief information officer and Federal CIO Council find the report and the ideas it contains useful in framing sound cybersecurity policies and processes for the government.”

The ideation initiative followed a consultation with senior government officials regarding the types of recommendations to choose.

ACT-IAC conducted an open public platform in August and September 2015 to help individuals submit and vote on ideas.
