How It Works
The Government will benefit from recommendations by industry, government and academia on how to dramatically improve the government’s security posture (short and long term). Following consultations with the Government, ACT-IAC has identified several questions that would provide useful input to addressing this important issue. All interested persons are invited to participate in this process.
Through this initiative, ACT-IAC requests ideas on underutilized or new measures that have real potential to improve the Government’s operational security on a day-to-day basis -- new, plausible action steps that can bear fruitful and positive impact. ACT-IAC seeks a broad array of technical, policy, legal, operational, managerial, acquisition, funding and R&D ideas that collectively could improve federal cybersecurity. Information about specific company products or services is not being requested and will not be included in the final report.
ACT-IAC will report to OMB on information provided through this initiative, as well as key themes based on that information; ultimately, ACT-IAC intends to release a public report on the findings as well. The comment period will close on Friday, September 18. The report to the Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO) and the Federal CIO Council will be submitted by September 30, 2015.
