Committee Hearings – Week of 6-28-20

This week with both the House and Senate in Washington there is a more normal slate of congressional hearings being held. One of interest here; the final markup of HR 6395, the House version of the FY 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

NDAA Markup

On Wednesday the House Armed Services Committee will be marking up HR 6395. Last week subcommittees conducted their markups. The Intelligence and Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee added some cyber provisions to the bill. We are likely to see additional provisions added in the full committee markup tomorrow.
The Subcommittee language included two cybersecurity provisions that could affect the private sector:

§1627—Assessing Private-Public Collaboration in Cybersecurity
§1628—Cyber Capabilities and Interoperability of the National Guard

Neither of those provisions were as proactive in mandating private sector actions as we saw in some of the provisions reported out on S 4049, the Senate version of the NDAA.
