House Lawmakers Introduce Federal Breach Response Bill

A bipartisan group of three House lawmakers has introduced a bill that would establish an interagency working group to assist federal employees who have experienced data breaches and other cyber attacks, Nextgov reported Thursday.

The Cyber VICTIM Act would assign a cyber victim response coordinator to lead the working group and submit an annual report to Congress on the group’s efforts to assist data breach victims.

The interagency office would notify employees on efforts to prosecute hackers and address cyber attack damages, as well as produce a report on the effect of potential cyber incidents on federal employees.

Reps. Anthony Brown and Charles Ruppersberger, both Democrats from Maryland, sponsored the legislation with Rep. Rob Wittman (R-Virginia).
