Combating the Cyber Threat

Cybersecurity is an important issue facing our nation. Cyber threats range from cyber espionage and theft, all the way to cyber war separate from or in tandem with traditional military attacks. The need for greater cybersecurity is seen in the countless attacks on individuals, businesses, and our government.

Currently, Congress is considering multiple bills to deal with this issue. Common elements in them include the need for increased information sharing while protecting privacy and whether or not a new regulation system is needed to promote cybersecurity.

Join us as Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) discusses how his proposal, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, deals with these important matters. Our panelists will then assess how privacy and regulatory concerns need to be addressed in the ongoing battle against cyber threats.
