HR 7777 Adopted in Homeland Security Committee – ICS Training

Yesterday, the House Homeland Security Committee held a business meeting where five DHS related bills were considered, including HR 7777, the Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity Training Act. Without amendment, the bill was ordered favorably reported by a voice vote. Once the Committee report is published, this bill will be cleared for consideration by the Whole House. The bill will almost certainly be taken up there under the suspension of the rules process. It will likely pass with strong bipartisan support.

This bill would amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to establish within CISA an Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity Training Initiative. No new funding is authorized in the bill. This, in effect, authorizes the long-standing ICS training program is CISA.
