Title

Cybersecurity Two Years Later: A Report of the CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency

Description

CSIS published Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency two years ago when cybersecurity was not as prevalent an issue as it is now. Their document really set the standard for making the United States secure against cyber threats. Yet, according to them, not much progress has been made.

CSIS does not believe the nation is prepared for cyber attacks. In 2008, their report had 25 recommendations. Given that there is a new administration and congress, this document reviews what cybersecurity progress has actually been made. They also report where more action is needed. 

CSIS is critical about the progress the government has made, which is helpful for citizens to see that think-tanks or research organizations are not controlled by government. Rather, the CSIS is an integral part of the decision/policy/law making process.

The Federal Government Cybersecurity Progress: Obama Administration Report Card 2009-Present (conducted by The National Security Cyberspace Institute) addresses similar criticisms, but also offers a different view of President Obama's progress.
