Today the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security published a public meeting notice in the Federal Register (80 FR 40997-40998) for the Information Systems Technology Advisory Committee. The partially closed meeting will be held on July 29th and 30th, 2015 in Washington, DC. The open portion of the meeting will include an industry presentation on “Penetration Testing and Implementation of Wassenaar 2013 Cyber-Related Provisions” on Wednesday.
The ISTAC advises the Department of Commerce on the technical parameters for export controls applicable to dual-use commodities and technology and on the administration of those controls. Note that DOC has not established web pages for the eight technical advisory committees that provide support to BIS.
There will be a limited number of public seats available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the meeting. There will also be provisions for up to 20 teleconference participants. Written public comments may be submitted before and after the meeting by emailing to Yvette.Springer@bis.doc.gov.
NOTE: This is the meeting that I briefly tweeted about yesterday.
