From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 1917, the K-12 Cybersecurity Act of 2021, provides cybersecurity guidance to K-12 educational institutions across the United States. It directs the Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to conduct a study of cybersecurity risks and challenges facing schools. Following completion of the study, the bill directs CISA to use the findings to create a set of cybersecurity recommendations and an online toolkit for educational institutions. The bill also instructs CISA to consult with teachers, school administrators, Federal agencies, non-Federal cybersecurity entities, and private sector organizations when conducting the study and developing the recommendations and online toolkit and exempts such consultation from the Federal Advisory Committee Act. Additionally, S. 1917 requires CISA to make the findings of the study, its cybersecurity recommendations, and the online toolkit publicly available on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website. Finally, S. 1917 specifies that these K-12 cybersecurity recommendations are voluntary."
