1 min read

Rep. John Katko, R-NY, introduced a bipartisan law that will help boost U.S. cybersecurity readiness. The Cybersecurity Advisory Committee Authorization Act of 2019 will create an advisory team of cybersecurity professionals that will assist in the protection of enterprise systems from cyber attacks, Katko said Thursday.

The committee will provide cybersecurity knowledge and insight to the Department of Homeland Security and the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

“The bipartisan measure I’ve introduced today takes steps towards equipping the agencies within the Department of Homeland Security with the necessary tools to respond to evolving cyber threats," Katko said.
