Specifically, this bill requires the NCCIC to coordinate with non-Federal entities, such as the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), for the purpose of engaging with SLTTs to conduct cybersecurity exercises, provide operational and technical cybersecurity training, and among other things, provide notifications of specific incidents and malware information. The bill also requires the NCCIC to work with senior Federal and non-Federal, state and local officials, including state and local Chief Information Officers and senior election officials, to ensure the effective implementation of information security processes and procedures."
