HR 6824 Passed in House – Cybersecurity Competition

Today, the House took up HR 6824, the President’s Cup Cybersecurity Competition Act. The bill was considered under the suspension of the rules process. There was limited debate of the bill this afternoon and a recorded vote was requested. This evening, the House voted 386 to 31 to pass the bill.

The way this bill is set up we could see multiple Department wide competitions or a single government wide competition. Or not competitions, if CISA decides it is just not worth the effort. In any case, if this bill passes, Congress gets credit for doing something for cybersecurity, even if no one holds a single competition.
