With the release of the final Report to the President on reducing botnet and malware threats, an implementation phase will now begin requiring an unprecedented level of industry, civil society and government engagement. In the May 2017 Cybersecurity Executive Order, the Trump Administration called on the Departments of Commerce and Homeland Security to jointly lead an open and transparent process to improve internet and communications ecosystem resiliency. Following a draft release on January 5, 2018 as called for in the Executive Order, this final report includes important recommendations and modifications that will have significant impacts on all digital ecosystem stakeholders.
Please join us at the 11th USTelecom Cybersecurity Policy Forum to hear leading agency officials who helped draft the report provide perspectives on the recommendations and lessons they learned from this year-long inquiry.
