Chairmen Green, Garbarino on the National Cybersecurity Strategy Implementation Plan
July 14, 2023
WASHINGTON, D.C.— House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark E. Green, MD (R-TN) and Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Chairman Andrew Garbarino (R-NY) issued the following statement on the Biden administration’s release of the National Cybersecurity Strategy Implementation Plan:
“We applaud the Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD) for the prompt release of the National Cybersecurity Strategy Implementation Plan. As we stated when the Strategy was released in March, a strategy is meaningless unless properly implemented. We are pleased to see specific responsible agencies and contributing entities called out in the plan and quantifiable timelines for completion. We look forward to seeing how ONCD works with the Office of Management and Budget to appropriately address budgetary considerations for each initiative.
“We remain steadfast in our belief that the Biden administration must streamline existing regulations while working with the private sector to identify new opportunities for partnership rather than punishment. Implementation of this strategy must be a collaborative process that aims to ease regulatory burden while maintaining strong cybersecurity practices. We intend to exercise strict oversight on CISA’s efforts as the responsible agency for at least 10 initiatives and a contributing entity to at least 19 initiatives, as it continues to execute its federal cybersecurity and critical infrastructure resilience mission.”
