Thompson, Clarke Release Statement on CISA Cyber Incident Reporting Proposed Rule

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, and Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY), released the below statement on the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) releasing its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act (CIRCIA), legislation authored by Reps. Clarke and Thompson.

“We commend CISA for its work in issuing the NPRM for the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act and for its efforts to engage stakeholders early on in the process. Establishing a mandatory cyber incident reporting framework is an enormous undertaking. As we in Congress review and weigh-in on the NPRM, our goal will be to ensure that CISA will have access to the information necessary to disrupt malicious cyber campaigns earlier and identify new tactics of bad actors so the government and the private sector can drive down risk. At the same time, we want to reduce compliance costs so more resources can be invested in security. Toward that end, now that the NPRM is out, we hope the Cyber Incident Reporting Council will redouble its efforts to promote harmonization of duplicative cyber incident reporting frameworks across government.”
