Panetta promotes cybersecurity bill
Thursday - 6/16/2011, 7:26pm EDT
This push comes in the wake of cyber spying at the International Monetary Fund, Google and several defense contractors. CIA Director Leon Panetta, cited in USA Today, recently warned a Senate panel that the U.S. needs to take "defensive measures as well as aggressive measures" to win at cyberwarefare.
The White House's timing may be no coincidence. After two previous bills failed to gain momentum, the administration needed to garner public support for a new law that could equip America for cyberwarfare.
The bill is gaining bipartisan support in Congress. It would establish a framework for distributing billions of dollars for new cybersecurity systems. It would also charge the Department of Homeland Security with responsibility for securing cyberspace.
