The Department of Homeland Security established the CSRB as directed in President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14028: Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity. The CSRB is an unprecedented public-private initiative that will bring government and industry leaders together to elevate the nation’s collective cybersecurity.
“The CSRB is an incredibly important new activity that will bring people together to make sense of complex cyber problems, and then map out the essential steps to solutions,” says Sager. “I am really excited to be part of the amazing group of people that CISA has assembled!”
The CSRB is composed of 15 highly esteemed cybersecurity leaders from the Federal Government and the private sector. Members will review and assess significant cyber events so that government, industry, and the broader security community can better protect the nation’s digital infrastructure.
Robert Silvers, DHS Under Secretary for Policy, will serve as Chair and Heather Adkins, Google’s Senior Director for Security Engineering, will serve as Deputy Chair. DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will manage, support, and fund the Board. CISA Director Jen Easterly will be responsible for appointing CSRB members, in consultation with the DHS Under Secretary for Policy, and for convening the Board following significant cybersecurity events.
