From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 2520, the State and Local Government Cybersecurity Act of 2021, amends the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to help State, local, Tribal, and territorial (SLTT) entities enhance their cybersecurity. The bill codifies and strengthens the cybersecurity relationship between the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It authorizes DHS to work with MS-ISAC to assist SLTT entities by conducting cybersecurity exercises, sharing information to increase situational awareness and prevent incidents, and coordinating effective implementation of cybersecurity tools, products, resources, policies, and guidelines. The bill also directs DHS to report to Congress on any services that the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), directly or indirectly through the MS-ISAC, provides to SLTT entities."
