Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) and would require the FCC to adopt cybersecurity protections for communications networks, citing them as “critical infrastructure;” the Interagency Cybersecurity Cooperation Act from Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) would create an interagency committee to review cybersecurity incidents; and the Securing IoT Act by Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.), requiring the FCC to come up with cybersecurity standards for IoT devices.
