NSTAC members will likely inform the discussion by contributing confidential and voluntarily-provided commercial information relating to private sector network vulnerabilities that they would not customarily release to the public. Disclosure of this information can be reasonably expected to frustrate DHS’s ongoing cybersecurity programs and initiatives and could be used to exploit vulnerabilities in the Federal Government’s cyber network.
