Hearing on Draft Legislative Proposal on Cybersecurity

Kevin R. Kosar
Analyst in American National Government

Chairman Lungren and Ranking Member Clarke, and Members of Subcommittee—on behalf of the Congressional Research Service, I would like to thank you for this opportunity to appear before you today.

CRS was asked to examine draft legislation that would amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 101 et seq.; HSA) for multiple purposes.
1 In particular, CRS was asked to provide its observations on Section 3 of the draft legislation, which would amend Title II of HSA to establish a National Information Sharing Organization (NISO).

Per your request, this written statement focuses solely upon the organizational structure of the NISO.
2 It first describes the organizational attributes of NISO as proposed in draft legislation, and then provides observations on NISO as a type of quasi governmental entity.
