Review - CISA Publishes RFI for Cyber Incident Reporting Rule

CISA published a request for information in Monday’s (available on line today) Federal Register (87 FR 55833-55836) to support their development of a congressionally mandated rulemaking for cybersecurity incident reporting (CSIR) under §2242(b) of the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act (CIRCIA) of 2022 (Division Y, PL 117-103, 136 STAT 1044). CISA has until March 15th, 2024 to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish the CSIR regulations.
