H.R. 5658 would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to report to the Congress on the effectiveness of the department’s responses to cybersecurity incidents. Under the bill, DHS also would provide the Congress with recommendations to further clarify cybersecurity responsibilities across the department’s component agencies.
Based on the costs of similar studies, CBO estimates that preparing and delivering the required report would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2026 period. Such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriations.
