Cybersecurity at the House

John Moe Mar 16, 2011

The House Committee on Homeland Security holds a hearing at 10am Eastern called “Examining the Cyber Threat to Critical Infrastructure and the American Economy.” Also, Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI) is expected to introduce a bill called the Executive Cyberspace Coordination Act. It would make a new National Office for Cybersecurity that would secure the government’s networks and it would work to train students in cybersecurity.
