“I’m proud to introduce this bill strengthening our Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency by empowering our agents to hunt for cyber threats on the .gov domain,” said Representative Green.

“America’s cyber infrastructure is under constant attack from foreign adversaries like China, North Korea, Iran, and Russia, and our Federal government experiences countless cyber assaults from malicious actors each day. My Protecting Federal Networks Act gives CISA the authority it needs to search for threats on our Federal systems and quickly mitigate those threats and vulnerabilities. Congress cannot wait—we must act now to protect America’s networks and ensure the security of our Nation’s cyber infrastructure,” Representative Green stated.
