NSTAC Meeting Scheduled – 5-24-22


CISA published a meeting notice in Monday’s (available on line today) Federal Register (87 FR 27655) for the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) for May 24th, 2022. Portions of the meeting will be closed to the public.

The agenda for the public portion of the meeting includes:

• A deliberation and vote on the NSTAC Report to the President on Enhancing U.S. Leadership in International Communications Technology Standards, and

• A status update from the NSTAC Information Technology and Operational Technology Convergence Subcommittee.

The informal report on IT/OT Convergence Subcommittee at the last NSTAC meeting noted that:

“Mr. Huffard believes the report should scope the challenge that should be addressed and include a series of policy recommendations to strengthen OT cybersecurity for the Federal Government as well as state, local, tribal and territorial governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure. He noted that the study will focus specifically on the convergence of IT/OT for industrial or critical infrastructure, and that it will highlight what is and is not working from government, asset owners, and original equipment manufacturers' perspectives.”

Persons wishing to attend the in-person meeting in Washington, DC need to contact before May 17th, 2022. Written comments may be submitted via the Federal eRulemaking Portal (; Docket # CISA-2022-0003)
