STAND. COM. REP. NO. 858-18
RE: H.B. No. 2696
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 2696, H.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE MILITARY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to analyze cyber threats to critical infrastructure throughout the State (e.g., hospitals, utilities, airlines, retail, government, etc.) and provide a nexus to federal partners (e.g., Federal Bureau of Investigation) to warn private and public sector entities of incoming cyber threats or ongoing cyber infiltrations and investigate these threats so as to best advise these sectors on how to respond by appropriating funds for the establishment of one full-time equivalent, civil service exempt cybersecurity analyst position within the State Department of Defense.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2696, H.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
