Originally introduced in 2019 by Senator Markey and Congressman Lieu (CA), the Cyber Shield Act did not get far. Now backed by interest from the Biden White House, they will be reintroducing this bill. “…the Cyber Shield Act will give consumers a seal of approval for more secure products, as well as encourage manufacturers to adopt the best cybersecurity practices so they can compete in the marketplace for safety. I thank Congressman Lieu for his partnership on this essential legislation.”
MassTLC worked with Senator Markey’s staff by bringing together stakeholders in IoT and Cyber to ensure they would be following existing and proven protocols set by NIST.
