Senate bill would give states closer coordination with federal cyber authorities

August 4, 2021


The Senate Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday advanced legislation aimed at making it easier for state and local governments to share information and receive intelligence from federal cybersecurity officials, including the Department of Homeland Security’s 24/7 monitoring unit.

The plainly titled State and Local Cybersecurity Act, sponsored by the panel’s chairman, Gary Peters, D-Mich., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, is aimed at giving states and localities access to DHS’s cyber resources, including security tools, policies and procedures developed by the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, DHS’s main threat-analysis and information-sharing facility.
