ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office: S. 333, National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium Act of 2019   [open pdf - 52KB]

From the Document: "S. 333 would authorize the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to coordinate with a consortium to assist state and local governments to prepare for and respond to cybersecurity risks. Since 2014, the department has awarded $13 million in grants to members of the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium to deliver cybersecurity training and technical assistance to state and local governments. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] expects that DHS would continue to provide a similar level of support under S. 333. CBO estimates that DHS would provide $3 million in new grant funding each year; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds. In total, implementing S. 333 would cost $18 million over the 2019-2024 period."
