President Joe Biden's recent executive order on cybersecurity drew praise for addressing critical gaps in the government's efforts to protect its digital assets, but lawmakers and experts are raising questions about one aspect of the order: the creation of a Cybersecurity Safety Review Board.

The executive order establishes a review board "co-chaired by government and private sector leads, that may convene following a significant cyber incident to analyze what happened and make concrete recommendations for improving cybersecurity."

The board will be there to "ask the hard questions" according to the executive order and is modeled after the National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates airplane crashes and transportation incidents.
