Dear Mr. President,
On behalf of the members of the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, we are pleased to present our
final report. You charged this nonpartisan Commission with developing actionable recommendations for securing
and growing the digital economy by strengthening cybersecurity in the public and private sectors. Recent events
have underscored the importance and urgency of this effort.
The Commission’s process was open and transparent, building on previous initiatives and the latest information
from a wide range of experts and the public. Drawing on these resources, the Commission has identified six
imperatives for enhancing cybersecurity, along with specific recommendations and action items supporting each
imperative. Successful implementation of our recommendations will require significant commitment from both the
public and private sectors and extensive cooperation and collaboration between the two. Indeed, enhancing the
state of national cybersecurity will require the coordinated effort of a wide range of organizations and individuals.
