S 658 Signed by President – Cybersecurity Consortia

Last week, President Biden signed S 658, the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium Act of 2021. Yesterday, the bill was assigned the Public Law number PL 117-122 (it will be months before the PL is actually printed).

As I have noted earlier the provisions in this bill allowing NCCIC to work with a consortium of non-profit entities to “develop, update, and deliver cybersecurity training in support of homeland security” are simply acknowledgement of DHS activities that have been taking place for a number of years. Since there is no new funding authorized in this bill, Congress again takes credit for work already done by DHS without spending any money or political capital.
