From Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of H.R. 3869 is to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to assist State and local coordination on cybersecurity with the national cybersecurity and communications integration center, and for other purposes.The State and Local Cyber Protection Act of 2015 would codify ongoing efforts by instructing the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to coordinate with State and local governments and to, upon request, provide assistance to secure their information systems. The legislation is intended to codify DHS' ongoing coordination effort to give assurances to State and local governments that DHS stands ready to partner with them to protect their networks through existing programs. The NCCIC would, to the extent practicable, assist in the identification of cyber vulnerabilities and related protections for State and local information security systems, develop a web portal to communicate available tools for State and locals to utilize, provide voluntary technical training for State and local cybersecurity analysts, provide assistance in implementing cybersecurity tools, provide privacy and civil liberties training, and inform State and locals about cybersecurity best practices. The bill would further direct the NCCIC to submit information on the effectiveness of their activities with State and locals to Congress two years after enactment."
