Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) founded the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus in 2008. As Co-Chairs of the CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency at the time, Rep. Langevin and Rep. McCaul wanted to create an opportunity for more members of Congress to become engaged in the same discussions. Congress plays a key role in the future of cybersecurity policy, but the overlap of committee jurisdictions can sometimes divide the attention and focus of Congress on these issues. The mission of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus is to create a forum where members of Congress from different committees and backgrounds can learn, discuss, and identify solutions for securing Americans in cyberspace.
