Jane Holl Lute, President and CEO, Council on Cybersecurity

The Senate would like to grant new powers to federal chief information officers and update federal IT laws that haven't gotten much attention for the past dozen years. Those are a couple of the effects of new legislation the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs approved recently. One of the bills is the Senate version of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act -- the other is an update to the Federal Information Security Modernization Act, which Senators have been trying to modify for the past several years, without much success. She said on In Depth with Francis Rose the proposals are a big step in the right direction.
