Title

Executive Cyberspace Coordination Act of 2011

Description

This bill was introduced March 16, 2011 and amends the United States Code (chapter 35 of title 44). It removes subchapters II and III and inserts a section on Information Security. The purpose of the new subchapter is to ensure effective information security controls that support Federal operations and assets. It also recognizes how networked the country is and aims to develop maintenance on federal information and information infrastructure.The next section is Definitions. The bill provides definitions for such words like "adequate security," "incident," "information infrastructre," and "information security." 

If passed, this bill will also require that the National Office for Cyberspace be created. Its purpose would "revise requirements relating to Federal information security, and for other purposes." With the new U.S. Cyber Command, new policies and strategies being implemented in the United States and other nation-states, the National Office for Cyberspace is another organization to help combat cyberwar. 

U.S. Cyber Command was implemented in 2011 which will undoubtedly work with the National Office for Cyberspace (if the bill if passed).
