Senate introduces revised version of the Cybersecurity Act of 2012

    20 July 2012

    Five senators have introduced a revised version of the the Cybersecurity Act, hoping to revamp support for it. Claiming to have more toned down language than the previous iteration, this bill includes provisions for a new "National Cybersecurity Council," as well as rules prohibiting the federal government from "compelling the disclosure of information from a private entity relating to an incident unless otherwise authorized by law."
