From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 3207, the Cybersecurity State Coordinator Act of 2020, requires the Director of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to appoint a Cybersecurity State Coordinator in each state with appropriate qualifications and expertise. Each Cybersecurity State Coordinator is responsible for building Federal and non-Federal relationships; serving as a cybersecurity risk advisor to Federal and non-Federal entities; assisting in the sharing of cyber threat information between Federal and non-Federal entities; and among other things, alerting non-Federal entities to available Federal resources. Each responsibility that involves a non-Federal entity is to be executed on a voluntary basis only if the non-Federal entity agrees. The bill also requires the CISA Director to brief Congress within one year after the enactment of this bill, and again three years later, on the placement and efficacy of the Cybersecurity State Coordinators."
