House bill favors private-government cooperation over regulation

Antone Gonsalves | Dec. 16, 2013
A bipartisan bill introduced in the House aims to strengthen the cybersecurity of the nation's critical infrastructure through cooperation between government and the private sector instead of new regulations.

Olcott predicted that the section of the bill that would provide liability exemptions for companies that suffer damage in cyberattacks would be controversial.

"That should engender quite a bit of discussion, if the bill makes it to the House floor," he said.

Parts of the bill that would help national security include one that defines the language of cybersecurity in critical infrastructure, Jennex said.

"This is good and important as it aids in ensuring everyone understands what is being said," he said.
