With the House in pro forma session and the Senate live there were 18 bills introduced yesterday. Only one of those may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
This bill provides authorization for FAA research activities. A copy of the bill is already available and quickly scanning the table of contents there are a number of cybersecurity related provisions. These include:
Sec. 31 - Cyber Testbed.
Sec. 32 - Cabin communications, entertainment, and information technology systems cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
Sec. 33 - Cybersecurity threat modeling.
Sec. 34 - National Institute of Standards and Technology cybersecurity standards.
Sec. 35 - Cybersecurity research coordination.
Sec. 36 - Cybersecurity research and development program.
I’ll have more details about this bill later.
