Today the National Institute of Standards and Technology published a meeting notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 27414-27415) for a public meeting of the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity. The meeting will take place in New York City on May 16th, 2016. The Commission was established by Executive Order 131718.
The agenda for this meeting of the Commission includes:
• Panel discussion on the cybersecurity challenges and opportunities in the finance sector;
• Panel discussion on the cybersecurity challenges and opportunities in the insurance sector; and
• Panel discussion on cybersecurity research and development in the finance sector.
As with the earlier meeting of the Commission, there will be a brief period reserved for public comments. Written comments on the topics listed may be submitted to the Commission. The meeting notice only provides a snail mail address for submitting comments, but there is an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) provided on the Commission web site.
That web site also provides a list of the Commissioners, something that was missing the last time that I mentioned the Commission. As I suspected, they are all Very Important People. I hope that they have hired a good staff to actually get the work done in time for their December report.
