The White House is considering establishing a Bureau of Cyber Statistics. The bipartisan Cyberspace Solarium Commission recommended creating the bureau to analyze cyber attacks.
- Sen. Angus King (I-ME), chair of the commission, said the bureau would fill gaps in data to get a handle on the nature and extent of cybersecurity issues and better determine which security measures are working.
- King said a priority for Chris Inglis, the national cyber director, is to organize a summit meeting with federal IT officials as well as one with private sector leaders to help establish trust and encourage real-time information sharing.
- King said the United States needs to communicate more clearly to adversaries that there will be serious consequences for cyber attacks.
