CISA Director Makes Case for Subpoena Power over Internet Service Providers
A bipartisan bill that would compel internet service providers to share details of vulnerable entities with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency is not currently being considered for a markup due to concerns over privacy violations, according to Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc. “We’re trying to create the desire for it,” Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, told reporters after a hearing today where CISA Director Christopher Krebs stressed the importance of the Cybersecurity Vulnerability Identification and Notification Act. The bill is sponsored by Johnson and committee Democrat Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire. A related bill recently cleared the equivalent committee in the House.
