ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4061, Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2009   [open pdf - 22KB]

From the Summary: "H.R. 4061 would reauthorize several National Science Foundation (NSF) programs that aim to enhance cybersecurity (the protection of computers and computer networks from unauthorized access). The bill also would require the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish a cybersecurity awareness program and implement standards for managing personal identifying information stored on computer systems. Finally, the bill would establish a task force to recommend actions to improve cybersecurity research and development. Based on information from NSF and NIST and assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 4061 would cost $639 million over the 2010-2014 period and $320 million after 2014. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues. H.R. 4061 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments."
