Analysis: Competing bills offer different approaches to cybersecurity
Friday - 3/2/2012, 11:02am EST
The gang of six say the previous bill introduced by Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and others is too burdensome on industry.
"I think it's awesome that we have the opportunity to continue to drive this dialogue on how we advance our protection in the cyberspace for America," said Bob Dix, vice president for government affairs and critical infrastructure for Juniper Networks. He joined The Federal Drive with Tom Temin Friday to offer analysis of the latest cyber bill.
"The second bill that was just introduced, the alternative to the first bill, approaches it in a perspective of taking chewable bites that can actually advance our cybersecurity protection profile," Dix said. "It does not establish a new regulatory and compliance regime for America's private sector critical infrastructure. And I think that's a key different between the two bills."
