The 60th Anniversary Anthology will review the past ten years and forecast the next ten years in the development of national security law. These articles capture the history, growth, and development of the Committee, the nation, and the world's evolution in national security law. The articles will be released serially through our website. We will later compile the articles in an e-book that can be downloaded or printed as a reader chooses. New essays are added regularly.
Colonial Pipeline Ransomware Attack Case Study Report Released
(March 2023) Read the Committee’s Case Study Report on the Colonial Pipeline Ransomware attack of May 7, 2021. The report assesses the pertinent government and private sector actors in pipeline management, highlights general vulnerabilities for critical infrastructure operators, and assists those in government and the private sector in searching for a balance of oversight and regulation that benefits the public good while respecting private interests. The National Cybersecurity Strategy, also released in March, highlights ransomware’s impact on key critical infrastructure services and commits to “mounting disruption campaigns and other efforts that are so sustained, coordinated and targeted that they render ransomware no longer profitable.”
