Feds roll out cyber plan as Hill vows legislation

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Administration officials and lawmakers say America is losing an aggressive cyber-espionage campaign waged from China.
Wednesday, both sides agreed to push legislation that would make it easier for the government and industry to share information about who is getting hacked and what to do about it.
They say the new partnership is critical to keeping countries like China, Russia and even Iran from rummaging in American computer networks and targeting proprietary data. That data can be used to wreak havoc or compete against U.S. businesses.
Tuesday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order that relies heavily on participation from U.S. industry in creating new voluntary standards for protecting information. The order also expands the government's effort to share threat data with companies.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says until Congress acts, President Obama will be fighting to defend this country with one hand tied behind his back. The Democrat promised Wednesday to advance a bipartisan proposal "as soon as possible."
