Cyber Valuing Individual Cybersecurity Through Interagency Measures Act or the Cyber VICTIM Act
This bill requires the President to designate a federal official as the interagency cyber victim response coordinator. The interagency cyber victim coordinator must respond to data breaches and other cyber attacks on federal employees.
Additionally, the coordinator must: (1) coordinate activities of the federal government relating to incidents of data breaches; (2) chair an interagency working group, consisting of appropriate personnel of the federal government and responding to cyber attacks against federal employees; (3) ensure sufficient representation of each federal agency at the interagency working group; and (4) develop processes and procedures to inform victims of efforts to mitigate damage from data breaches and prosecute perpetrators.
The President must develop a comprehensive plan for the U.S. response to data breaches of personal information of federal employees.
