Chairman Green: We Cannot Allow Cyber Red-Tape to Strangle Industry

WASHINGTON, DC— Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark E. Green, MD (R-TN) released the following statement on the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee’s (NSTAC) report to President Biden.

“I’m glad to see this iteration of the NSTAC report emphasizes the need to create policies and processes to encourage regulatory harmonization—something this Committee has been calling on the Administration to do for some time now. While we continue to wait in anticipation for the release of the National Cyber Strategy, which I am concerned will strike the exact opposite tone by encouraging more regulation, I’m glad to see that the NSTAC recommends that the National Cyber Director work to resolve and streamline duplicative and burdensome regulatory obligations, most of which stem from the White House push for cross-sector mandates. I look forward to pursuing strong oversight over this Administration’s scattershot cybersecurity regulations this Congress and I look forward to working with CISA to ensure the red tape doesn’t strangle industry as they complete the congressionally-mandated Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act rulemaking.”
