The U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs advanced a bill that would require critical infrastructure operators, like hospitals and oil companies, to report cyberattacks and ransomware payments within 72 hours, The Wall Street Journal reports. The bill includes $100 million in funding over the next five years for government agencies impacted by major cyberattacks. The Department of Homeland Security has also said it would require "high-risk" rail and transit systems to report cyber incidents and implement plans to address cyberattacks. Editor's note: IAPP Vice President & Chief Knowledge Officer Caitlin Fennessy, CIPP/US, reported on risk mitigation and compliance around ransomware incidents.
