MeriTalk – House Panel Approves Bills to Codify CDM, Establish DHS Chief Data Officer

“The House Homeland Security Committee today voted to recommend two bills aimed at strengthening and solidifying IT operations of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and to guard against evolving cybersecurity threats.”

“HR 6443, the Advancing Cybersecurity Diagnostics and Mitigation Act was introduced by Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, last Wednesday and would codify DHS’ Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program into law. The bill would require DHS to ensure that the CDM program keeps pace with innovation in network monitoring technologies, and require the DHS Secretary to submit a strategy to Congress – within 180 days of the bill’s enactment – on how to carry out the CDM program.”

“HR 6447, the Department of Homeland Security Chief Data Officer Authorization Act, was introduced by Rep. John Carter, R-Texas, and would establish the position of Chief Data Officer at DHS.”

“Both bills were contained in a package of measures considered en bloc due to bipartisan support expressed prior to today’s markup. The panel approved all of the bills by unanimous consent.”

“The two bills will now be favorably reported to the full House for consideration.” Read the full article here.
