The Department of Homeland Security has announced a new Cyber Safety Review Board bringing together cybersecurity experts from public and private organizations to “review and assess significant cybersecurity events.”
The board was part of the executive order that President Joe Biden signed last year. Experts have long called for a federal organisation for cybersecurity incidents similar to the National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates airplane crashes and transportation incidents. 
Alejandro Mayorkas, Homeland Security secretary, said the board will “thoroughly assess past events, ask the hard questions, and drive improvements across the private and public sectors.”
DHS announced that the board will begin with issues related to Log4J as a growing set of threat actors are exploiting vulnerabilities associated with the software library, presenting an urgent challenge to network defenders.
