Langevin pushes Cybersecurity Act

Posted 2/22/12

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. James R. Langevin is urging passage of the Cybersecurity Act of 2012.

The act follows “many” of the recommendations of the CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity of the 44th Presidency, Langevin said, adding: “We can’t allow the perfect to be the enemy of the necessary.”

“The Act significantly addresses our nation’s top cyber priorities of requiring stronger safeguards for critical industries, helping coordinate federal government capabilities, and providing for sharing of cyber threat information across the public and private sectors without sacrificing the privacy of Internet users,” the Rhode Island Democrat said in a news release Feb. 14.

“While it is not the White House position recommended by CSIS that I preferred, I am pleased with the inclusion of a Senate-confirmed Cybersecurity Director at DHS. This should play an essential role in making our currently disjointed cybersecurity policies more uniform and efficient across the government, saving taxpayer money and guaranteeing high-quality defenses for our networks and the sensitive materials on them,” according to the release.
