Newly Revised Cybersecurity Bill Introduced in Senate
This revised bill was introduced in the Senate by Senators Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins of the Senate Homeland security committee. It is basically a somewhat scaled-back version of a bill introduced in February of this year and many people are saying that it is a better version. This new revision includes the formation of a multi agency National Cybersecurity Council whose purpose would basically be to assess the risks and vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure computer systems. There would be involvement on the part of several entities within the government including members of the Pentagon, the Department of Commerce, the Justice Department, the intelligence community and federal regulatory agencies related to specific critical infrastructure governing while being led by Homeland Security Secretary.
