It’s time to begin paying attention to the tech policies formulated in the U.S right now., starting with the 5 very important policy issues we’ve listed below:
Bad cyber security legislation CISPA is likely to fail if it goes to a vote on the Senate floor, according to comments made by Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.), chairman of the committee on commerce, science and transportation, today.
The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protections Act passed in the House today after many privacy groups spoke out in opposition.
Editor’s Pick CISPA author Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) says he hasn’t heard of one U.S. company that opposes CISPA. We’ve heard of four.
Looks like CISPA, which was recently voted through committee, may have to go back to the drawing room floor as the White House threatens to veto it.
A criticized cyber-security bill that hopes to improve information sharing between the private and public sectors was voted through by the House Intelligence Committee today.
As a member of congress, it’s one thing to support a bad piece of tech policy because you don’t fully understand the Internet but it’s quite another when you brag about all the money you’re making on the side from that position.
While congress has yet to reach any sort of lasting solution regarding the nations growing cyber security problems, President Barack Obama has decidedly taken the first big step in an executive order signed earlier today.
Rumors of CISPA’s demise were apparently greatly exaggerated, according to various privacy rights advocates and organizations today.
Following a number of large botnet attacks on major corporations last year, the Obama administration announced a voluntary, industry-wide plan to combat botnets based on a set of developed principles by the Industry Botnet Group (IBG) and nine other private groups. The White House also revealed its development of a consumer-education campaign intended to teach the public about computer viruses.
