What is it?

This bill would make the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) present a plan for physical/cybersecurity technology research and development. These developments would be for protecting U.S. "critical infrastructure," i.e. anything essential for running society and the economy. Think things like electricity, fuel, water, telecommunication and agriculture.

In addition, DHS would have to create a report (to Congress) demonstrating how public-private consortia that develop protective technology are used. In order to share technological innovations, H.R. 2952 would create a clearinghouse to distribute them.

Impact

Critical infrastructure security and the cybersecurity branches of DHS.

Cost

$500.00 Thousand
The CBO estimates that implementation of the bill would cost less than $500,000 in each of the years 2014 and 2015.

AKA

Cybersecurity Workforce Assessment Act

Official Title

An act to require the Secretary of Homeland Security to assess the cybersecurity workforce of the Department of Homeland Security and develop a comprehensive workforce strategy, and for other purposes.

    "Along with the commercial benefits of a world interconnected through the web, an environment has emerged for bad actors to steal trade and business secrets, raid consumer financial information, wreak havoc on business networks, and even disrupt major utilities. These cyberattacks are on the rise and pose a real and growing threat to our national and economic security and compromise consumers’ privacy."

They bring entrepreneurial energy that creates jobs for all who live in America." Read more at: uschamber.com
