Statement by Secretary Jeh C. Johnson on the Passage of S. 754 – Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015

I congratulate the U.S. Senate for passing the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (S.754) by a large bipartisan majority vote of 74-21. In particular, I wish to thank Senators Burr, Feinstein, Johnson and Carper for their leadership and hard work. The Senate bill will now go to conference with the earlier-passed House cybersecurity bill. Both bills strengthen the role of the Department of Homeland Security in our Nation's cybersecurity effort. For DHS's part, I pledge our energy and focus to this national imperative. As Secretary, I have directed an aggressive timetable for improving our federal cybersecurity in particular, and have made cybersecurity a top priority for DHS, alongside our other vital missions. Now, with the help of Congress, we will be able to continue our work to protect the cybersecurity of the American public, American businesses large and small, and the federal government, and take that work to the next level.

Chemical Sector Regulatory Authorities

The majority of Chemical Sector assets are privately owned and operated. However, the highest-risk assets are regulated for security through several different regulatory programs.

Safety and Security for Small and Midsize Chemical Facilities

Small and midisze chemical facilities are vital to the Chemical Sector and subject to the same threat environment as their larger counterparts. Working together, both public and private sector partners can improve the cyber and physical security and resilience of the Chemical Sector.
