Enhancing Resilience of the Internet and Communications Ecosystem (Second Workshop)

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 to Thursday, March 1, 2018

This workshop at the NCCoE will discuss substantive public comments, including open issues, on a draft report about actions to address automated and distributed threats to the digital ecosystem as part of the activity directed by Executive Order 13800, “Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure.”  In this workshop, the Departments of Commerce and Homeland Security seek to engage all interested stakeholders—including private industry, academia, civil society, and other security experts—on this draft report, its characterization of the threat landscape, the goals laid out, and the actions to further these goals. The draft report was published January 5, 2018 and is available at A Report to the President on Enhancing the Resilience of the Internet and Communications Ecosystem Against Botnets and Other Automated, Distributed Threats.

This report builds on the July 2017 Workshop on on Enhancing Resilience of the Internet and Communications Ecosystem. The proceedings of this workshop were published as NISTIR 8192, "Enhancing Resilience of the Internet and Communications Ecosystem: A NIST Workshop Proceedings."
