Senate Commerce Chairman John (Jay) Rockefeller and Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, are crafting legislation that they hope will improve the country’s cybersecurity posture in the face of increasingly sophisticated global attacks against U.S. government networks as well as the nation’s broader critical infrastructure. Rockefeller indicated he was working on the bill at a Thursday hearing where he also pledged to make cybersecurity a committee priority this year. He called cybersecurity “a profoundly and deeply troubling problem to which we are not paying much attention.” (Tech Daily Dose)
