The commission’s report covers six emerging threats and offers potential solutions. It is intended as a transition document to help the next administration. The commission will present the report to Obama tomorrow at 2 p.m.

The commission itself was created by executive order in February and has since convened six public meetings on cybersecurity.

It is composed of 12 experts from varying backgrounds, including former National Security Agency and Cyber Command head Gen. Keith Alexander. It also includes current and past executives from MasterCard, IBM and the information security firm Crowdstrike, as well as professors from Georgia Tech and Stanford.
