U.S. Cybersecurity Focusing on the Dept. of Homeland Security


The nation’s cybersecurity defenses appear to be coming to a focus in the Department of Homeland Security,  a press release from DHS indicates.

“On November 13,” the release reads,  “the United States House of Representatives voted unanimously to pass legislation creating the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  The CISA Act (H.R. 3359), which passed the Senate in October and now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law, would reorganize DHS’ National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) into a new agency and prioritize its mission as the Federal leader for cyber and physical infrastructure security.”
