A pair of House committees this week said they want to spend additional millions on cybersecurity by injecting funds into both the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the Federal Trade Commission, as part of the debate over the Biden administration's $3.5 trillion federal budget proposal for 2022.
On Tuesday, the House Homeland Security Committee approved an amendment as part of the markup debate over the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill that would give CISA $865 million to fund various security programs. Included in that funding is nearly $400 million to help implement President Joe Biden's executive order on cybersecurity.
