ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 7777, Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity Training Act   [open pdf - 154KB]

From the Document: "H.R. 7777 would require the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to offer voluntary cybersecurity training to critical infrastructure operators. Under the bill, CISA would teach attendees to identify and mitigate threats to information systems that are used in the automated control of critical infrastructure processes (such as power generation and water treatment). In addition, the bill would require CISA to report to the Congress on the effectiveness of its efforts. CISA already provides cybersecurity training courses for critical infrastructure operators; thus, the bill would codify those responsibilities and would not impose any new operating requirements on the agency. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 7777 would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2027 period to prepare and deliver the required reports; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
