1 min read

The fiscal 2019 defense authorization bill that came out of a House-Senate conference committee includes language to establish a commission that would create a national cyber doctrine, Defense Systems reported Friday.

The Cyberspace Solarium Commission will consist of 14 members and develop a unified strategic approach to guard U.S. assets against threats in cyberspace.

These members will include the director of national intelligence, deputy director of homeland security, deputy defense secretary, FBI director, five senators and five representatives, the report noted.

The bill would also require the government to review the effectiveness of Defense Innovation Unit Experimental programs and study the feasibility of integrating DIUx into the Defense Department‘s research and engineering enterprise.
