Top Issues,

Everett Kaneshige, who is currently the Statewide Interoperability Coordinator, Office of Homeland Security, for the State of Hawaii, will serve on the FCC’s Communications Security, Reliability, and Interoperability Council (CSRIC), which provides advice and recommendations to the Commission to improve the security, reliability, and interoperability of the nation’s communications systems.  The FCC re-established CSRIC in June 2021, and NATOA submitted an application for a seat on the Council to be filled by Mr. Kaneshige.  Under the current CSRIC charter, which expires on

 June 29, 2023, the Council will address  issues concerning 5G security, risks to service providers from software and cloud services stacks, and the availability and resiliency of 911 service and wireless emergency alerts.  NATOA applauds Everett for his appointment and willingness to serve on this important Council.
