Is There a New Sheriff in Town? FCC Poised to Expand Cybersecurity Role
Author: Michael J. SheppeardDate: September 10, 2021
Cybersecurity oversight appears to be shifting under the Biden Administration, with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) poised to take on a much larger role. While some of the agencies’ expanded cyber authority would be mandated under legislation working its way through Congress, the FCC is also exploring its own cybersecurity-related rulemakings.
On July 21, 2021, the House of Representatives’ Energy and Commerce Committee advanced a package of eight cybersecurity bills aimed to improve the security of the country’s telecommunications networks and supply chains. "Collectively, these bills will only further our commitment to increasing the safety and security of our networks and supply chains, while at the same time increasing competition and innovation in the telecommunications marketplace," committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) said in a press statement.
