Abstract: On 1 December 2016, the US Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity (the Commission)—charged with developing recommendations to ensure the digital economy’s growth and security—released the “Report on Securing and Growing the Digital Economy” (the Report).(1) The nonpartisan Commission was formed to develop the Report in response to challenges posed by cyberthreats. The Report focuses on areas such as the protection of critical infrastructure, the Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity R&D, public awareness and education to strengthen cybersecurity, governance issues, development of a cyber-ready workforce, identity management and authentication, cyberinsurance, international and global issues, and the role of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
