WASHINGTON, D.C. – More than two dozen cyber security measures are included in the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act.
That’s according to a statement from Maine Senator Angus King, who was a co-chair of the cyberspace solarium commission.
The independent senator said if the recommendations are adopted, they will help protect the country’s national security interests.
Among the recommendations are the creation of a national cyber director, a provision to better protect national security and better integration of cyber security efforts across federal departments.
The bill has already passed through the House and Senate and is now headed to the President’s desk.
