Leave a comment

On January 25, 2011, the 112th Congress introduced its first data security-related bill—the Cybersecurity and American Cyber Competitiveness Act (S. 21). The bill is co-sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and several Senate Committee leaders, including Senators Leahy, Levin, Bingaman, Kerry, Rockefeller, Lieberman, and Feinstein. The bill seeks to safeguard critical technology infrastructure from cyber attacks and protect individual privacy by improving identity theft prevention measures, guarding against personal information abuse, and seeking to promote international cooperation to combat cyber threats. More information regarding S. 21 is available in a statement released by the bill’s co-sponsors.
