Center for Strategic and International Studies, Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency, A Report of the CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency (Dec. 2008) (full-text).


This report provides recommendations for quickly improving the U.S.'s cybersecurity as well as forming long-term recommendations that are critical to the nation's future cyber objectives. It provides a high-level assessment of how federal agencies should work together to improve cyber security and offered policy and regulatory recommendations.

The Commission's three major findings were:

  1. cybersecurity is now a national security problem for the United States;
  2. decisions and actions must respect privacy and civil liberties; and
  3. only a comprehensive national security strategy that embraces both the domestic and international aspects of cybersecurity will make the United States more secure.
