January 26 - The Information Sharing Project Kickoff Meeting (Boston, MA):

The project is moving forward on the Stonewall internal proof of concept, with Raytheon temporarily serving as the fusion center.  This project will test the processes for upchanneling C2 addresses and sending them back downrange to monitoring devices.

February 14 - ISA Supply Chain Workshop (San Francisco, CA):

The Project on Securing the Electronics Supply Chain is now moving toward a draft of a guidelines document.  The previous workshops in the series have surveyed the practical security measures necessary for the Design, Fabrication, Pre-assembly, Assembly, Distribution, and Maintenance Phases.  This workshop in this technical series will revisit the points in the previous workshops that need further clarity or elaboration.  The main purpose of this session is to fill in some missing pieces and to sort out some conflicting recommendations.  We require people with technical expertise, especially regarding some of the security measures in design and fabrication that were tackled early on.  There will be one additional workshop that is non-technical, devoted to the legal and contractual conditions necessary for implementing the other security measures.

If we can increase the cost to the attackers and simultaneously increase the profitability of good cyber defense we believe we can create the sustainable system of cyber security which will make out nation and our economy the envy of the world in the 21st century, just as we were in the 20th century..."
