National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement (NCPA) Act


"Cyber criminals, hacktivists, and nation-states will never stop targeting Americans’ private information and American companies' and government networks to damage, disturb and steal intellectual property and U.S. Government secrets. One of the greatest cyber threats to the homeland is the weakness of our power grids, and energy and water systems. A successful cyber attack on our critical infrastructure could cripple our economy. Congress must take action to defend America’s vital digital networks and help American businesses better protect themselves." – Chairman McCaul and Subcommittee Chairman Ratcliffe
