Thursday - 6/3/2010, 4:11pm EDT
- If the 2011 defense authorization bill passes the Senate the Defense Department will get an added boost to it's cybersecurity portfolio. NextGov reports that the budget proposes additional funding for cybersecurity pilot programs that will explore new ways for the Defense Department agencies and contractors to gain greater access to cybersecurity tools and services. One of those projects would help to develop a consortium of major telecommunications companies and internet service providers. The House version which passed last Friday also funds new ways to address cybersecurity requirements. There versions has a pilot program to test how computer security features can be built in to information systems during the development process. The Senate is expected to finish final markups of the bill later this week.
