The Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity will discuss the scope of its work and solicit input from stakeholders during a public meeting scheduled to take place April 14 at the Commerce Department headquarters in Washington.
The public meeting will highlight topics that the commission plans to review when it crafts strategies to help agencies and companies strengthen the cybersecurity of their systems without compromising the privacy of individuals, according to a notice posted Thursday on the Federal Register.
The White House established the commission within DOC’s National Institute of Standards and Technology as part of President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity national action plan unveiled in February.
Tom Donilon, a former national security adviser to the president, and former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano spearhead the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity as chairman and deputy chairman, respectively.
DOC appointed former Liberty Group Ventures President Kiersten Todt in March to be executive director of the commission.
