Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding the Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2019

“Maintaining strong, risk-based cybersecurity standards is paramount for effective business and government operations. The Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2019 wisely directs OMB to heed the outcome of a review process currently underway at NIST when making IoT purchasing decisions. The requirements in this bill will have a positive ripple effect throughout the ecosystem since the government is such a large purchaser and user of IoT devices. We applaud Senators Gardner, Warner, Johnson and Peters for meaningfully improving and navigating this legislation through the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.”
