Administration declines to back cybersecurity bill
Wednesday - 6/16/2010, 8:30am EDT
- A comprehensive cybersecurity bill that's making its way through the Senate did not get the endorsement of the White House. GovInfoSecurity reports that Philip Reitinger, DHS deputy undersecretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that the administration's review of the bill isn't complete. He wouldn't give a timetable on when it would be finished - and he questioned provisions in the bill to create a new component within DHS that would focus on cybersecurity. Reitinger says the administration would rather not have a separate organization devoted to cybersecurity because it's more effective to address jointly the risks to key physical and cyber infrastructures.
- US CERT is responsible for preventing and responding to cybersecurity attacks. But do they have the authority to make sure your agency is protecting your network? Homeland Security Inspector General Richard Skinner says - no. Skinner is expected to testify before Congress this week. Congress Daily reports the IG will tell lawmakers that the Computer Emergency Readiness Team, or CERT, is hindered in its ability to effectively manage its own cyber responsibilities. He says that CERT hasn't developed a strategic plan that lays out its goals, and it doesn't have the staff it needs to perform its missions.
