Last week, on the 10th anniversary of the release of The 9/11 Commission Report, the 9/11 Commissioners reconvened to issue a new report with five recommendations to improve the nation’s security. One recommendation calls on Congress to pass legislation to better protect Americans from intensifying attacks on the nation’s information systems and to enable collaboration between the public and private sectors.
Congress has a responsibility to Americans to create a comprehensive cyber security bill that would adequately address this complex issue. To assist legislators, a number of think tanks and academics have researched and recommended possible solutions. BPC’s Homeland Security Project has updated its Cyber Security Research Guide to provide policymakers and their staffs, researchers and private companies with the most up-to-date studies, ensuring both the public and private sectors have the resources required to safeguard the nation’s cyber domain.
