Watch Live: Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

How can the US defend itself from cyberthreats in the next ten years? Watch a discussion with some of the authors of a cybersecurity report delivered to President Obama earlier this month. 

The Presidential Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity turned its report in to the President on December 1. Established in February 2016 by executive order, the Commission was charged with making recommendations to “address actions that can be taken over the next decade” to improve national cybersecurity. The Commission’s recommendations are expected to include information for government agencies, private companies, and other stakeholders, covering a wide range of activities in cyberspace, emerging technologies, the Internet of Things, and industry best practices.
 
The event will gather members of the Presidential Commission to discuss the findings and the report’s implications for cybersecurity, business, and the near future of cyber policy in the United States.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
