NTSC Legislative Day

Thursday, July 11
In conjunction with the NTSC National CISO Policy Conference, the NTSC welcomes CISO advocates to Washington, D.C. for our annual NTSC DC Fly-In. NTSC members—including CISOs and underwriters from across the nation—will spend time on Capitol Hill speaking with Members of Congress and congressional staffers about cybersecurity issues affecting the CISO community and their businesses.

This year’s DC Fly-In calls for action and policy priorities include:

  • National Data Breach Notification Legislation: The NTSC supports the enactment of a meaningful and uniform federal national data breach notification law that is consistent, predictable, and feasible about how an affected person shall be notified.
  • Public-Private Cyber Threat Intelligence Exchange: The NTSC promotes information sharing partnerships to create a more robust and resilient cybersecurity alliance that protects both the private and public sectors’ critical infrastructure from cyber threats.
  • Cybersecurity Workforce Development: The NTSC promotes policies that strengthen the nation’s ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development.
