The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced that it intends to recharter the Communications Security, Reliability, and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) for a fifth two-year term. CSRIC is a federal advisory committee whose mission is to provide recommendations to the FCC to ensure, among other things, optimal security and reliability of communications systems, including telecommunications, media, and public safety. Nominations and expressions of interest for membership in the fifth CSRIC must be submitted to the FCC no later than March 31, 2015. CSRIC members will be appointed from among federal, state, tribal, and local government agencies and organizations; organizations representing users of communications systems, including the Internet; and other private-sector organizations. Procedures for submitting nominations and expressions of interest are set forth in the FCC’s Public Notice. The fifth CSRIC is expected to commence in March 2015 after the current CSRIC charter expires on March 18, 2015.
