CISA to Seek Public Input on CIRCIA Implementation

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency will seek public comments on its proposal to implement the regulations under the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act of 2022.

According to the Federal Register, the notice of proposed rulemaking will be published on Thursday.

CIRCIA’s implementation will enable enhanced incident reporting to capture information needed to boost the capability to combat cyberthreats, including ransomware attacks, CISA said.

CISA Director Jen Easterly, a 2024 Wash100 awardee, called the Act a game changer for the cybersecurity community, including those involved in protecting national critical infrastructure.

According to Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and a past Wash100 awardee, reports submitted through CIRCIA will improve the agency’s ability to spot trends, provide assistance to victims of cyber incidents and share information with other potential victims.

“The proposed rule is the result of collaboration with public and private stakeholders, and DHS welcomes feedback during the public comment period on the direction and substance of the final rule,” Mayorkas said.
