CISA Seeks Input on CIRCIA Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. The Federal Register posted for public inspection the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), which CISA was required to develop by the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act of 2022 (CIRCIA). The NPRM will soon formally publish in the Federal Register, following which the public will have 60 days to provide their written comments to inform the direction and substance of the Final Rule. Beginning in September 2022, CISA solicited input from public and private sector stakeholders, including the critical infrastructure community, as the agency developed the NPRM, and the open comment period on the NPRM is another opportunity for stakeholders to submit written comments on the CIRCIA rulemaking process. The NPRM contain proposed regulations for cyber incident and ransom payment reporting, as well as other aspects of the CIRCIA regulatory program. Implementation of CIRCIA will enable CISA to develop insights on the cyber threat landscape to drive cyber risk reduction across the nation and to provide early warning to entities who may be at risk of targeting. The comments CISA received through the Request for Information (RFI) and listening sessions over the past year helped shape this NPRM. In turn, getting robust input on the NPRM will support our ability to implement CIRCIA to drive national cyber risk reduction. Any member of the public, including critical infrastructure sector entities and other stakeholders, can provide written comments on the NPRM during the 60-day public comment period. Detailed information about the NPRM and instructions for submission of public comment will be available at Federal Register – Public Inspection: Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act. Visit cisa.gov/CIRCIA to learn more.
