Department of Homeland Security Endorsing Draft Bill Codifying Cyber Safety Review Board
The Department of Homeland Security is pushing for the passage of a law that would make the Cyber Safety Review Board permanent, provide for regular funding and grant the board subpoena powers to compel testimonies. On Monday, the board released a draft version of the bill for endorsement to Congress. DHS Undersecretary Rob Silvers said Wednesday during the RSA Conference that there is a collaborative effort among the DHS, Congress and the White House for the board’s codification, Recorded Future News reported.
The CSRB was established in 2021 pursuant to Executive Order 14028 issued by President Joe Biden to review cyber incidents and provide actionable recommendations to improve the cybersecurity ecosystem of the United States. Since its formation, the board has investigated several cyber incidents, including the Log4j event and the data extortion group Lapsus$.
