Lawmakers close to finalizing federal strategy to defend against cyberattacks

by MAGGIE MILLER - The Hill  |  Published on January 2, 2020

A federal strategy for defending the U.S. government against cyberattacks is one step closer to completion, with lawmakers saying they have a draft form that could be finalized as early as March.

The report has been in the works since 2018 after the National Defense Authorization Act created a commission, consisting of lawmakers and industry leaders, to draw up recommendations.

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.), co-chairman of the commission, told The Hill that the commission had recently put together a draft version.

“Over the holiday we will have a few weeks to dig into the draft text, and there are a few issues we are working through, but we feel good,” Gallagher said on Dec. 19. “We had a meeting this week, an additional meeting, and it was a really robust debate, and so I think we’re getting there.”
