The White House might be nearing resolution on the role of State in cyber ops. ICE is probably snooping more than you realize. And a congressman drops in for some thoughts on cyber in antitrust legislation. This is CyberScoop for May 11.

State gains more ability to weigh in on cyber ops

The White House has forged a tentative agreement with the State and Defense departments that will allow the State Department to weigh in on certain cyber operations, a move that will pare back some of the unprecedented authority Defense gained in 2018 when the Trump administration implemented policy changes under National Security Presidential Memorandum-13. DOD alumni say the revised policy could hinder cyber operations by reducing speed and agility. Those sympathetic to the State Department say the White House-led revision of the policy was necessary because changes are partially meant to counter perceptions that U.S. cyber ops have become unchecked, leading to Cyber Command operating in other countries — often allies where an adversary might be storing a server — without notifying them. Suzanne Smalley has the scoop.

ICE has probably scanned your license

Based on public records, researchers at Georgetown Law’s Center for Privacy and Technology found that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has scanned at least a third of all adults’ driver’s licenses with facial recognition technology and is able to access the licenses of roughly 75% of adults. The research published Tuesday shows just how widespread ICE’s dragnet is and the chilling effects it can have on immigrant communities seeking public services. Right now there’s no law stopping ICE from using the data but researchers are urging Congress to change that. Tonya Riley has more.

A top lawmaker's take on cyber and antitrust legislation

"Unfortunately, the antitrust bills being considered in both the House and Senate include antitrust reforms that would have unintended cybersecurity consequences," Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., writes in an op-ed for CyberScoop. The American Innovation and Choice Online Act is the focus of his concern. "Legislation that allows thousands of foreign companies – many from countries at odds with American values – to fully integrate and access domestic platforms is antithetical to this work and only contributes to national security fears. Congress should not hamper the ability of platforms to counter these risks." Read the full op-ed.


Making sense of government zero trust guidance

Zero trust is more than a philosophy; it’s an outcomes-based approach to coordinating existing and new security capabilities, Google Cloud security executive, Dan Prieto, told government leaders at CyberScoop’s recent Zero Trust Summit. He urged leaders to look beyond the individual components that go into zero trust and how these security components are integrated, measuring effectiveness and not compliance.
