DHS Cybersecurity Branch Signed into Existence by Trump

Donald Trump, the President of U.S., signed today the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2018 which officializes the new cybersecurity branch of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

"CISA's responsibilities include: leading cybersecurity and critical infrastructure security programs, operations, and associated policy; coordinating with non-federal and federal entities; and carrying out DHS's responsibilities concerning chemical facility anti-terrorism standards," says the summary of the bill signed by Trump on November 16.

Moreover, CISA encompasses multiple divisions which were formerly part of the DHS, namely the Infrastructure Security Division, the Cybersecurity Division, and the Emergency Communications Division.
