Industry Groups Urge Congress To Include Cybersecurity Funding in Coronavirus Relief Package

Washington Post, February 16, 2021

By Tonya Riley

Cybersecurity groups are urging Congress to make federal and state cybersecurity funding a priority as lawmakers iron out a $1.9 trillion dollar coronavirus relief package.

The letter adds to a growing chorus of calls by cybersecurity experts and trade groups to support Biden's proposal for increased cybersecurity funding as part of pandemic relief. The push follows a show of support for the funding earlier this month by CompTIA and other trade groups including BSA The Software Alliance, the Internet Association and the Chamber of Commerce.
