Steve Bucci — Senior Fellow, Heritage Foundation
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says cyber legislation may be on the agenda for a lame duck session of Congress that starts the week after the election. The Obama administration, meanwhile, is finalizing the language in a draft cybersecurity executive order that would address some of the points Congress hasn't acted on yet.
Dr. Steve Bucci, a senior research fellow for defense and homeland security at the Heritage Foundation, joins In Depth to discuss why he believes issuing an executive order would be using "a 19th-century answer for a 21st-century problem."
