Can NTSB-style oversight work for cybersecurity?
“The timelines alone would make a ‘cyber NTSB’ almost impossible,” said Tatyana Bolton, policy director of the cybersecurity and emerging threats program at the R Street Institute.
Bolton, who formerly worked at CISA, added the administration should wait to have its national cyber director confirmed before creating new organizations or panels. The president has nominated Chris Inglis, the former NSA deputy director, to be the first national cyber director.
“I think the biggest bang for your buck in cyber incident response is streamlining roles and responsibilities for incident responders and making sure everyone’s working off the same playbook. We don’t even have that right now, so let’s focus on the basics,” she said.
