Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2018
To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to authorize the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency of the Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes.
Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2017 (Sec. 2) This bill amends the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to redesignate the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) National Protection and Programs Directorate as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). CISA shall be headed by the Director of National Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security, and CISA's responsibilities include: leading cybersecurity and critical infrastructure security programs, operations, and associated policy; coordinating with non-federal and federal entities; and carrying out DHS's responsibilities concerning chemical facility antiterrorism standards. CISA shall be composed of DHS components reorganized as: (1) the Cybersecurity Division, (2) the Infrastructure Security Division, and (3) the Emergency Communications Division (currently the Office of Emergency Communications). The agency must have a privacy officer to ensure compliance with federal laws. (Sec. 3) The bill transfers within DHS the Office of Biometric Identity Management to the Directorate for Management, and it authorizes the transfer of the Federal Protective Service to any DHS component, directorate, or other office that DHS deems appropriate. (Sec. 5) No additional funds are authorized to carry out this bill's requirements.
