Cyber Security Recommendations for the 45th Presidency

 

Cybersecurity Recommendations Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX) announced they would be introducing legislation that would consolidate federal cybersecurity operations into a single agency under the Department of Homeland Security. Representative McCaul, chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, said the bill would be one of the first pieces of legislation generated by his committee in the 115th Congress. The announcement came during a news conference in which the two lawmakers outlined the recommendations of the Cyber Policy Task Force they co-chaired at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. They were joined by a number of cybersecurity experts who worked on the task force’s recommendations, including Nico Sell of Wickr Foundation.
