    US Homeland Security Could Get Its Own Cyber Defense Agency

    BY ALIYA STERNSTEIN

    A key House panel on Wednesday voted to create a new Homeland Security Department agency that reflects the primacy of cyber protection among DHS’ protective responsibilities.

    A bill introduced yesterday by the Homeland Security Committee – approved by a voice vote – would turn an existing DHS bureaucracy, the National Protection and Programs Directorate, or NPPD, into an “operational” agency, like the Transportation Security Administration.

    The directorate would be renamed the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Agency. It is expected the overhaul would take effect under the next White House administration in 2017.

    OMG finally serious infrastructure protection. Most of out critical infrastructure is vulnerable because there are not enough regulations on private companies to protect them. Its only a matter of time before we have to pay for our lack of attention to this problem.
