Review - HR 5658 Introduced – Cybersecurity Roles

Last week, Rep Bacon (R,NE) introduced HR 5658, the DHS Roles and Responsibilities in Cyber Space Act. The bill would require DHS to prepare “a report on the roles and responsibilities of the Department and its components relating to cyber incident response.” The bill was marked-up in Committee this week and was amended and ordered reported favorably.

Once the Committee Report on the bill is published, this bill is likely to move to the floor of the House under the suspension of the rules process and the bill will almost certainly be approved by a bipartisan majority.

For more details about the report, and the Committee markup of the bill, see my article at CFSN Detailed Analysis - - subscription required.
