Debating the future of cyber

Debating the future of cyber (Expert Blogs and Opinion)

Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), co-chair of the newly established Cyberspace Solarium Commission, said the group is currently determining how best to structure itself and allocate resources as it seeks to explore three visions for defending U.S. interests in cyberspace. The commission also includes FBI Director Christopher Wray, cyber-focused lawmaker Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I.), Sue Gordon the deputy director of the Office of National Intelligence, former National Security Agency Deputy Director Chris Ingles and Suzanne Spaulding, who used to lead the cybersecurity agency at the Department of Homeland Security. The commission draws inspiration for its name and mission from Project Solarium, a 1953 body formed by President Dwight Eisenhower that debated three strategies for confronting Soviet expansion. The Cyberspace Solarium Commission plans to break into working groups focusing on offensive strategy, defensive strategy focused on deterrence, and regulating threats through global norms enforced by the international community.
