“Just two years after CIRCIA was signed into law, the cyber threat landscape has become even more dynamic with ever-increasing risk to our critical infrastructure from cyber adversaries, such as China and Russia, and opportunistic cybercriminals. Addressing these complex threats to the homeland demands effective implementation of CIRCIA,” Chairman Garbarino said. “It is more important than ever to ensure there is a streamlined process for critical infrastructure entities to identify cross-sector vulnerabilities and mitigate risk. 

“Successfully combating the cascading effects of cyber intrusions requires complete alignment with Congress’ intent in CIRCIA, which will empower CISA to foster public-private partnerships and enhance interagency information sharing. I look forward to hearing valuable feedback from private sector stakeholders, who own and operate most of our critical infrastructure, on how implementing this landmark law can usher in a turning point for our national cyber defense and the resilience of our critical infrastructure.”


What: A Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection hearing entitled, “Surveying CIRCIA: Sector Perspectives on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.”
