On December 18, 2015, Congress passed Public Law 114-113, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, which includes Title I - the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (the Act). The Act was established to improve cybersecurity in the United States through enhanced sharing of cyber threat information. The Act requires the inspectors general of the “appropriate Federal entities,” defined as the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Defense, Commerce, Energy, and the Treasury, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), “in consultation with the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community and the Council of Inspectors General on Financial Oversight,” to jointly report to Congress by December 18—every two years—on the actions taken over the most recent two-year period to carry out the Act. The Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (IC IG) audited the ODNI’s implementation of the Act for calendar year (CY) 2019 and CY 2020.
