Important Cybersecurity Measures Congress Approved in NDAA

There haven’t been much Coverage of these Measures that come out of the Bipartisan Cyberspace Solarium Commission, which included Executive Branch Members, Congress had created before the Solar Winds Story broke. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes 26 Amendments the Commission recommended on Cybersecurity, with more New Legislation hopefully to come, based on the Excellent Work of this Commission.

The President has threatened to Veto the NDAA, which was Enacted with Veto-Proof Support.

The Solarium Commission pitched 34 Amendments to the NDAA 2020, and 26 made it to the Final Draft. The Commission has a Total of 52 Amendments it Plans to give to Congress.

Rather than Submitting Ideas to Congress, the Solarium submitted Fully-Drafted Bills with Legislative Language. This made it easier for Legislators to get Onboard.

Members of the Solarium in the Armed Services Committees in both the House and Senate, also made it Easier to Pass the Amendments.

In order to get the Recommendations in the Bill, they had to get 180 Clearances from both sides of all kinds of Committees on Capitol Hill.
