The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has established a Cyber Safety Review Board (CSRB) to “bring together government and industry leaders to elevate our nation’s cybersecurity”. Prompted by President Biden, the board will function to improve the nation’s cybersecurity.
“At the President’s direction,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas, “DHS is establishing the Cyber Safety Review Board to thoroughly assess past events, ask the hard questions, and drive improvements across the private and public sectors. I look forward to reviewing the Board’s recommendations regarding how we can better protect communities across our country as DHS works to build a more secure digital future.”
“The CSRB’s first report, which will be delivered this summer, will include the following:
* a review and assessment of vulnerabilities associated with the Log4j software library, to include associated threat activity and known impacts, as well as actions taken by both the government and the private sector to mitigate the impact of such vulnerabilities;
* recommendations for addressing any ongoing vulnerabilities and threat activity; and,
* recommendations for improving cybersecurity and incident response practices and policy based on lessons learned from the Log4j vulnerability.”
