On August 19, 1986, the NSTAC Industry Executive Subcommittee (IES) established the Industry Information Security Task Force (IIS Task Force) to develop industry's perspective on the protection of sensitive but unclassified information. The original IIS Task Force defined and identified sensitive information categories, the relationship between telecommunications and automated information systems, an analysis methodology, and areas for further investigation.
The IES then established a follow-on IIS Task Force to improve information security in telecommunications and automated information systems. The IIS Task Force submitted its final report to the NSTAC on September 22, 1988. It contained 10 conclusions and eight recommendations. On September 22, 1988, the NSTAC approved the IIS Task Force final report and forwarded it to the President.
