Analyst calls Senate cybersecurity bill inadequate
Tuesday - 7/24/2012, 9:48am EDT
Paul Rosenzweig, an analyst with the conservative Heritage Foundation, called the bill still intrusive and said the negative incentives render the so-called voluntary standards mandatory. Plus the liability protections for infrastructure owners are too weak, Rosenzweig wrote in a report released this week.
Although he applauded lawmakers for trying to address cybersecurity concerns, Rosenzweig said the bill would chill innovation without improving security.
Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) have said the revised bill gives concessions to other lawmakers who don't think the federal government should regulate cyber practices in the private sector. A vote is expected on the bill this week.
