Congress May Pass New Cybersecurity Laws

11.28.14

A recent article evaluating the new Congress indicated it may “allow information about civilians to go directly to the National Security Agency, or some other federal agency such as Homeland Security, before going to the NSA.” On November 23, 2014 Judge Greenwald wrote an article in Business Insurance entitled “Cyber breaches could prompt cooperation in Congress” in which she indicated the “long-stalled cyber security legislation finally stands a strong chance of gaining approval by Congress and being signed into law.”

The article included comments by said Larry Clinton (President and CEO of, Internet Security Alliance):

There also may be incentives put in place to “promote the wider use” of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s [NIST] proposed voluntary cyber security framework.

However there are concerns about privacy that must be balanced with any new cybersecurity laws.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
