Chris Bing, associate editor at CyberScoop, discusses how members of the National Security Council are looking to change the way “disruptive” cyberwarfare is authorized.


Some members of the National Security Council are proposing to rescind Presidential Policy Directive 20, the classified doctrine for U.S.-sanctioned cyberwarfare. Chris Bing, associate editor at CyberScoop, said that the rationale behind this proposal is that NSC wants to replace Directive 20 with something faster.   “One of the reasons that the National Security Council is considering rescinding this policy directive is because they’d like to provide a more streamlined channel for these types of offensive operations for Cyber Command to further contribute to national security,” “said Bing, who wrote about the directive for Cyberscoop. “Critics will say that the directive causes a lag in approval and sometimes delays very important operations. Supporters say it is a necessary oversight function, that while flawed, requires notification to other government agencies that would have equities involved.”
