 In NEWS, Uncategorized

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) is the original cosponsor of recently introduced bipartisan legislation that aims to encourage private-sector participation in strengthening the nation’s cybersecurity capabilities. Sen. Portman joined U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) on July 31 to present the DHS Cyber Incident Response Teams Act of 2018, S. 3309, which is the U.S. Senate version of the same-named H.R. 5074, unveiled on Feb. 20 by U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee.  The bill would require the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to make permanent the “cyber hunt” and “cyber incident response” teams that help prevent and mitigate cyberattacks on federal agencies and the private sector, according to a joint Aug. 1 statement by Sens. Portman and Hassan, who both serve on the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.  Read the story at https://riponadvance.com/stories/portman-unveils-senate-version-of-cybersecurity-protection-mitigation-proposal/
