New cybersecurity rules coming

An amendment that would require agencies to include cybersecurity in the planning and acquisition phases of systems development may soon become law, according to Bob Dix, staff director of the House Government Reform subcommittee on technology, information policy and the census.

Rep. Adam Putnam (R-Fla.), chairman of the subcommittee, plans to add the amendment to a bill that will be passed before Congress adjourns, Dix said. He said Sept. 16 that the bill had not yet been chosen yet. Congress is set to adjourn Oct. 1.
