Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid promised to bring up comprehensive cybersecurity legislation early on in 2012. Last year, there were more than 50 bills introduced in Congress, but they received little attention.
Deputy secretaries now get quarterly scorecards on how their agency is meeting four IT security priorities, including continuous monitoring of agency networks and secure identity cards. Howard Schmidt, the White House cyber coordinator, said the goal is to increase accountability and make sure agencies are putting enough focus on these areas. Schmidt said he is also developing priorities for 2012, which includes getting cybersecurity legislation passed.
