A top leader of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has voiced support for a 24-hour timeline for cyber incident reporting involving critical infrastructure, signaling a push by the Biden administration to implement a rapid mechanism for federal response.

Brandon Wales, the executive director - and former interim director - of CISA, said during a Bloomberg event on Tuesday, "I think the U.S. government has argued that we think 24 hours is the right amount of time, that brings it in early enough for us to use the information, but does give the company some time to determine whether this is a real incident or not."
