Analysis: Incremental approach on cyber legislation more effective
Friday - 3/9/2012, 5:56pm EST
In the Senate, where the focus has been on comprehensive legislation, there are two competing bills: One offered by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called the SECURE IT Act, and the other introduced by a trio of senators from across the aisle called the Cybersecurity Act of 2012.
The House, meanwhile, has even more cyber bills circulating, although most of them are much smaller in scope than either of the Senate's.
Paul Rosenzweig, a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation and the former the deputy assistant secretary for policy at the Homeland Security Department, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the competing proposals.
Rosenzweig hosted a Heritage Foundation discussion that included remarks by the Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who has also introduced a bill dealing with cybersecurity and intelligence sharing.
Rosenzweig said while he appreciates both approaches, he tends to favor a more incremental method.
