Are You Aware of The New Cyber Law?

Businesses, government, and private sectors are all being targeted by cybercrime at an alarming rate. In the past, the U.S. government paid much less attention to business cybersecurity. Over the past couple of years, cybercrime has increased sharply, so the administration has adopted a tough stance against it and developed radical solutions to safeguard businesses and individuals online. This article at EC Council Cybersecurity Exchange by Lev Craig speaks about the new cyber law passed in the U.S. legislation.

The New Cybersecurity Law

Congress passed two bills on June 21 that aim to strengthen the federal cyber workforce and foster collaboration between all levels of government. This new legislation is the latest effort to strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity. The new cyber law hopes to improve skills and experience in the federal cyber workforce. In addition, it promotes coordination on security issues at all levels of government. By enacting this law, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) can efficiently coordinate with state, local, tribal, and territorial governments.

Views About the New Cyber Law

In a statement, Rep. Joe Neguse (D-Colo.), who introduced the bill, said for hackers, governments are an attractive target. Increasing support for CISA will enable the agency to strengthen systems and better defend itself against cyberattacks. The second cybersecurity bill, the Federal Rotational Cyber Workforce Program Act of 2021, will allow U.S. government personnel in IT, cybersecurity, and related sectors to cycle between responsibilities across agencies. This will enable them to acquire new skills and experience in various roles.

Justin Fier, vice president of tactical risk and response at Darktrace, states that the law “will provide government cyber workers with significant transferable skills and expand their career options.”

Furthermore, the senate unanimously approved the bill demonstrating the growing importance of cyber defense. VMware’s head of cybersecurity strategy, Tom Kellerman, describes it as a “game changer.” He adds, “To have true bipartisanship action in this regard is historic.”
