Summary

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee included the Cyber Sense Act and the Enhancing Grid Security bill in its massive energy package, approved last week, that is expected to be part of a bipartisan infrastructure framework.“The Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack was painful proof that bad actors are increasingly focused on exploiting and attacking our nation’s most critical infrastructure,” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and Rush said in a joint statement Tuesday following the passage of the energy sector bills.“It’s absolutely crucial that we keep pace with the tools and resources necessary to both stop and mitigate fallout from these cyberattacks, and thankfully, today the House voted to do just that,” they added.The legislation advanced Tuesday also drew praise from outsider observers, with former CISA Director Christopher Krebs tweeting his support for the CISA-linked legislation.“Great to see these bi-partisan @CISAgov-enabling bills clear the House today, including boosting state/local cyber grants, expanding cyber exercises, and codifying the Agency as the front door for industrial control systems cybersecurity work,” Krebs tweeted.
