U.S. Congress Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Improve Cyber-security

On December 11th 2014, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed S. 2519, the National Cybersecurity Protection Act of 2014, and a Senate amendment to H.R. 2952, the Cybersecurity Workforce Assessment Act - bipartisan legislation to strengthen the nation’s cyber defenses.
 
The S.2519 establishes the U.S. National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), a federal civilian interface at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the sharing of cyber-threat information. It also facilitates cyber-security across critical infrastructure sectors and ensures Americans’ civil liberties are protected.
 
The H.R.2952 strengthens DHS’s cyber-security workforce by requiring the Secretary of Homeland Security to assess the cyber-security workforce of DHS and develop a strategy to enhance the department’s ability to protect U.S. from cyber-attacks.
