Congressmen Introduce Bill To Provide States Privacy Training & Enhance Cybersecurity Coordination

On Feb. 16th, U.S. Senators David Perdue (R-GA) and Gary Peters (D-MI) re-introduced S. 412: State and Local Cyber Protection Act of 2017,  which aims to strengthen America’s cyber defense capabilities by increasing coordination with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The Act seeks to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require State and local coordination on cybersecurity with the national cybersecurity and communications integration center as well as provide, in coordination with the Chief Privacy Officer and the Chief Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Officer of the Department, privacy and civil liberties training to State and local governments related to cybersecurity.
