Cyber-Insecurity?

The U.S. Congress is considering a bill to mandate that the White House work with private industry to protect our nation’s cyber infrastructure.  Apparently, health care isn’t the only thing Congress has been doing these days.  This bill certainly appears to be a good idea; this issue and the consequences from insecure networks are big enough to need all hands on deck.

The bill is called the Cyber Security Act, S. 773, and is co-sponsored by Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine).  But, what does this bill mean?  Is this a Government takeover of private networks?  We’ll discuss the issue.

Also, did you know that young people are becoming the #1 target for identity thieves?  We’ll ask why and talk about what we can all do to protect ourselves.  We’ll also discuss the economic hurdles standing in the way of better cyber security overall.  This is a discussion you won’t want to miss.
