Solarium Commission’s Recommendations: The Top Priorities
Paul Rosenzweig, a senior fellow at the nonprofit public policy research organization R Street Institute, said the government should prioritize establishing a Bureau of Cyber Statistics. As noted in the March 2020 Solarium report, such a bureau would gather and provide statistical data on cybersecurity and the cyber ecosystem to support policymaking and government programs.
“If we’re going to actually have a significant effort to systematize America’s approach to cybersecurity, the bureau of cyber statistics is likely to be a venue for creating those types of metrics,” he said. Such statistics would enable the creation of an accurate picture of looming cyberthreats and sketch out where the dangers lie.
