House Passes Small Business Cybersecurity Bills

Bills are designed to protect small businesses from new threats.

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives passed two new bills intended to address the challenges small businesses face when it comes to cybersecurity. During the COVID-19 pandemic, American businesses have faced growing threats from cybercriminals, primarily in the form of ransomware. Both bills passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. 

“Cyberattacks are one of the biggest threats to our economy and small businesses and way of life,” said Representative Jason Crow of Colorado, a co-sponsor of the bills. “This bill would ensure we are doing everything we can to protect the millions of small businesses that the SBA serves and prepare them for 21st-century threats.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials in the SBA to assist in protecting businesses from cybercrime.
  • That members of the Senate would have wisdom as they vote on these bills.
  • That President Biden would seek guidance from the Lord on how to promote a more secure cyber environment.
