On Dec. 1, The Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity issued its key deliverable, the report on Securing and Growing The Digital Economy. That is a good report. For policy-makers new to cybersecurity, the introduction recaps issues the nation has been dealing with for quite some time, and the many recommendations are things we should all support. But in my opinion, it’s not a report that should be sent to the president or president-elect. It is far too long and detailed (over 100 pages long). Experienced security professionals can grasp it, but for those new to the topic, it requires a deep understanding of reference material, including two pages of obtuse acronyms and the many reference documents and definitions in an extended glossary. This is not anything we should expect any executive to spend much time on.
