CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44 Presidency

The US Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C.  A commission on cybersecurity was formed in 2007 in order to prepare a set of recommendations for the incoming US President.  Unfortunately, the report is rather generic and banal, boiling down to a statement that US cybersecurity is weak, and that the US should be doing pretty much the usual, only better.  This report has been promoted on a number of security mailing lists as an important set of recommendations.  It probably is important to read, if only to get a view of the fairly limited position which may be driving US public policy in the near term.
