The House might consider another bill to lock down your networks.

Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I.) has introduced the Executive Cyberspace Coordination Act.

One provision would launch a national cyberspace office to enforce agency requirements.

The bill would also cement FISMA reforms aimed at continuous monitoring.

It's the most recent in a spate of cybersecurity bills moving through Congress.
