FCC to Reestablish Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council

The Federal Communications Commission has announced its intent to renew an advisory committee dedicated to enhancing national communications systems.

Planned to operate for two years, the ninth Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council is expected to explore how artificial intelligence and machine learning can responsibly and transparently improve connectivity networks, the FCC said Wednesday.

Reestablishment will take place by March 30, with an initial meeting expected in June.

According to a press release, FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenwercel also seeks to order CSRIC to address security risks with 6G networks and the reliability of Next Generation 911 networks.

She stated that the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has agreed to co-chair the new iteration of the committee.

The eighth iteration of CSRIC, which Rosenworcel established in 2021, concluded its work earlier in 2023. It focused on securing 5G networks and mitigating vulnerabilities in software and cloud services.

Billy Bob Brown, CISA’s executive assistant director for emergency communications at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and Nasrin Rezai, senior vice president and chief information security officer at Verizon Communications, co-chaired CSRIC VIII.
