Cyberspace Solarium Commission members push to realize some remaining initiatives such as a Bureau of Cyber Statistics. A nonprofit promoting cybersecurity best practices for states is growing. And a Texas university launches a cyber center. This is CyberScoop for Sept. 21.

Solarium makes progress, faces some obstacles

The congressional commission charged with bolstering U.S. cyber defenses has already seen plenty of its recommendations realized: the appointment of a national cyber director, increased CISA funding and a State Department cyber ambassador. And a new report released Wednesday shows the Cyberspace Solarium Commission is on track to have 85% of all of its recommendations implemented with the remaining either facing some hurdles or “significant barriers.” The commission progress report shows that nearly 60% of its original 82 recommendations have been fully or nearly implemented and more than 25% are on track to be realized. Apart from the progress, however, the momentum driving the initial completion of so many solarium-recommended initiatives first announced in March 2020 appears to have slowed, raising questions about whether all the recommendations will be put in place. Suzanne Smalley has the story.

Those new partners include the K12 Security Information Exchange, a group that’s bemoaned the lack of security standards for grade-school tech providers, and the University of North Carolina system, which Leah McGrath, StateRAMP’s executive director, suggested could be the first of multiple public higher-education systems to adopt the standards.

Texas A&M University launches cyber institute

Texas A&M University launched its new Global Cyber Research Institute this week, thanks to a $10 million gift from donors. In addition to researching government and corporate vulnerabilities, the institute will provide students cybersecurity training and help develop national security policies. The institute, announced earlier this year, is to be jointly managed by Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, the university’s engineering research agency. (They also manage the Texas A&M Cybersecurity Center, which is also focused on research and education.) Lindsay McKenzie writes for EdScoop.
