DHS Partners With European Commission to Align Cyber Incident Reporting

The Department of Homeland Security has entered into a partnership with the European Commission’s Directorate General for Communications, Networks, Content and Technology to align transatlantic cyber incident reporting.

Robert Silvers, undersecretary for policy at the Department of Homeland Security and chairperson of the Cyber Incident Reporting Council, said the department is committed to harmonizing incident reporting rules domestically and with like-minded partners.

The collaboration is part of an effort to improve cyber incident reporting. In 2022, President Joe Biden signed the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act to better coordinate, deconflict and harmonize reporting requirements, DHS .gov reported.

Due to the increasing number of cyber incidents, the DHS has been working to ensure compliance by affected agencies through several initiatives. In March, it sought a budget of $116 million for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency for fiscal year 2025 to address staffing and technology issues affecting its cyber incident report processing operations.

It is also working to ensure that reporting of cyberattacks is done within the 72-hour timeframe provided by the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act.
