It's time for a National Cybersecurity Safety Board (NCSB)

Ben Rothke, CISSP with Nettitude and the author of Computer Security: 20 Things Every Employee Should Know. | Feb. 23, 2015
With regards to information security, the Sony breach of 2014 shows that the time has arrived to create a National Cybersecurity Safety Board (NCSB).

The NTSB also has a Most Wanted List, which represents the agencies' advocacy priorities, designed to increase awareness of, and support for, the most critical changes needed to reduce transportation accidents and save lives. The NCSB would also issue its annual cybersecurity most wanted list.

Creating the NCSB in the model of the NTSB would be a benefit to every US organization. After megabreaches at Anthem, Heartland Payment Systems, Evernote, TJX, Target, Home Depot, Sony and much more; it still leaves us in early 2015 at a standstill, when it comes to breach information sharing, cause determination and proposed recommendations.

Creating a NCSB is an idea whose time has come. If it does get created, it will be a crucial step in the growth and maturity of information security.
