Report: Trump Administration to Issue Rules on Cyber Vulnerability Disclosures

The Trump administration is slated to release its rules for determining whether newly-discovered cybersecurity vulnerabilities should be disclosed or kept secret, Reuters reported Wednesday.

An anonymous national security official told Reuters that the guidelines are expected to be published Wednesday on the White House website.

The source added that the new rules will identify federal agencies involved in the decision-making process and will include more agencies than in the previous review process under the Obama administration, such as the departments of Commerce, Treasury and State.

Rob Joyce, the White House cybersecurity coordinator, said at a Washington Post event last month that the guidelines will include criteria used by an interagency panel and will also reveal the panel members.
