SBA Cyber Awareness Act by Reps. Kim, Crow signed into law 

This week, President Biden signed into law the SBA Cyber Awareness Act (H.R. 3462), a bipartisan bill by U.S. Reps. Young Kim (CA-39) and Jason Crow (CO-06) to strengthen the Small Business Administration (SBA)’s cybersecurity capabilities to handle and report cyber threats that impact small businesses.

Reps. Kim and Crow serve as Ranking Member and Chair of the Small Business Subcommittee on Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Workforce Development.

“Half of small businesses with fewer than 500 employees say that they are likely to experience a cyberattack in the next 12 months. These entrepreneurs provide vital jobs and deserve certainty that they can safely and securely access the SBA resources available to them,” said Kim. “I thank Rep. Jason Crow for working with me on this bipartisan effort to support our small businesses and ensure SBA has the tools needed to keep their information safe from cyberattacks. I won’t stop fighting for the entrepreneurs chasing their American Dream.”

 “Our small businesses are three times more likely to be targeted by cybercriminals than larger companies are. And when successful, just one of these attacks can be fatal to the business,” said Crow. “I am proud to work with Ranking Member Kim on a bipartisan basis to help protect our small businesses, and honored to deliver this win for business owners across the country.”

The SBA Cyber Awareness Act would expand cybersecurity operations at the SBA by requiring the SBA to notify Congress of future breaches with information on those affected and how the breach occurred and directing the SBA to issue a report within six months of bill passage assessing the agency’s ability to combat cyber threats. Specifically, the report would disclose:  

  • The SBA’s cybersecurity infrastructure;
  • The SBA’s strategy to improve cybersecurity protections;
  • Any equipment used by the SBA and manufactured by a company headquartered in China; and,
  • Any incident of cyber risk at the SBA and the agency’s actions to confront it. 

Senate companion legislation (S. 1691) was introduced by Senate Small Business Committee Chair Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). The SBA Cyber Awareness Act passed the House in November 2021.

  1. I agree with Jonathan that Young Kim is a RINO and needs to go. In the November election, many people who read my weekly newsletter (Patriot Neighbors) and live in Kim’s district asked me if they should vote for her since she is a RINO. My response as stated in the newsletter and numerous “American Thinker” columns was that 2022 would be the absolutely last time any America First voters should vote for someone just because they have an “R” after their name. We are not going to do it anymore!

    1. The Patriot Neighbors and America First voters had the opportunity to put Greg Raths, instead of Young Kim, into the general election and failed as usual. More big mouths and no big votes. Arizona beckons all of you to move there and have the opportunity to be represented by true patriots in the US House also known as Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar.

  2. I have been reading the comments & want to add my 2 cents. I agree that Young Kim is one of the RINOs that we need to get rid of in Congress. I think she hires people just to write these press releases. If Young Kim drinks a cup of coffee, they will put out a news release. If Young Kim burps, they will put out a press release. Doesn’t the OCB Have a quota on the # of press releases they will publish from someone in a week? It is ridiculous that we keep getting these news releases.

    1. Johnathan,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      I agree that Rep. Kim’s office is diligent about issuing press releases. I think that’s good! I wish that all our local representatives were as diligent in sending out press releases.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.
