Cyber Hunt Team Provisions in HR 1865

When the Senate passed (by a vote of 71 to 23) HR 1865, the second half of the two-part FY 2020 spending bill, last week and the President signed the bill into law, Title L (pg 556), the DHS Cyber Hunt and Incident Response Teams, was included in that bill. The provisions were the same language that had been adopted by the Senate in their consideration of the original version of HR 1158, a bill of the same name as Title L.

Title L authorizes the current US-CERT and ICSCERT action teams and provides for the use of private sector contractors on those teams. No additional funding was authorized in the Title L and no specific funding (too small to be listed) was provided in the general increase in the  Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) funding provisions in Division F of HR 1158, the first half of the two-part FY 2020 spending bill.
