The fifth in USTelecom’s series of National Cybersecurity Policy Forums will address analysis and findings from the final report, scheduled for release March 18, of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) Working Group 4. The report provides insight and guidance on how companies can use the National Institute of Technology and Standards (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework to enhance risk management capabilities. Keynote speaker Donna Dodson, chief cybersecurity advisor at NIST, will provide an overview of the impact and significance of the group’s efforts to advance the framework. Representatives from the broadcast, cable, satellite, wireless and wireline segments and other stakeholders, including Dodson, will then discuss the report’s key findings, conclusions and recommendations to improve cybersecurity critical infrastructure in two panel discussions.

Light refreshments will be available.
