    Require the secretary of Homeland Security to create and implement a maritime cybersecurity risk assessment model, within 120 days of the bill's enactment, to evaluate current and future cybersecurity risks and to evaluate, at least once every two years, the effectiveness of the model.

    It also would require the secretary to seek participation from at least one information sharing and analysis organization representing the maritime community. The measure also would create guidelines for the voluntary reporting of maritime-related cybersecurity risks and incidents to the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center and other federal agencies.

    The measure would require the secretary, acting through the commandant of the Coast Guard, to direct each Area Maritime Security Advisory Committee to facilitate the sharing of cybersecurity risks and incidents to address port-specific cybersecurity risks. It also would require that any area maritime security plan and facility security plan approved after the development of the model include a mitigation plan to prevent, manage, and respond to cybersecurity risks.

    It also would require the secretary, when conducting a detailed vulnerability assessment of U.S. facilities and vessels that may be involved in a transportation security incident, to identify the weaknesses in cybersecurity as well as require vessel and facilities owners to include prevention, management, and response to cybersecurity risks when creating security plans.
