New Cybersecurity Bill Includes ABA-Backed Provisions

Leaders of the House Homeland Security Committee introduced a new cybersecurity legislation (H.R. 3696) that includes several ABA-supported provisions.

The bill would clarify that the Treasury Department maintains its critical role as the lead coordinating agency for the financial services sector. It also would grant specific legal authorization for the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, which coordinates federal government and private-sector efforts to combat cyber-attacks.

The House has already passed another ABA-supported bill (H.R. 624) to enhance the ability of the government and the private-sector to share cyber threat information. ABA strongly supports efforts to move forward on similar legislation in the Senate, as outlined in a joint letter last month.

Read the letter.
