California Committee to Hear Cyber Security Commission Measure

The California Assembly Committee on Accountability & Administrative Review will hear Assembly Bill 2200 on April 9, 2014. AB 2200 would create the California Cyber Security Commission, consisting of members comprised of representatives from state, local, and federal government, the Legislature, and private industries, as specified.

The duties of the commission would include establishing cyber-attack response strategies and defining a hierarchy of command within the state for this purpose. The bill would require the commission to meet on a monthly basis, and would require the commission to issue a report on a quarterly basis to the Governor’s Office and the Legislature that details the cyber security status and progress of the state and makes recommendations on how to improve the cyber security of the state.
