Federal Laws Relating to Cybersecurity: Discussion of Proposed Revisions [April 23, 2012] [open pdf - 506KB]
"For more than a decade, various experts have expressed concerns about information-system security-often referred to as cybersecurity-in the United States and abroad. The frequency, impact, and sophistication of attacks on those systems has added urgency to the concerns. Consensus has also been growing that the current legislative framework for cybersecurity might need to be revised to address needs for improved cybersecurity, especially given the continuing evolution of the technology and threat environments. This report, with contributions from several CRS [Congressional Research Service] staff (see Acknowledgments), discusses that framework and proposals to amend more than 30 acts of Congress that are part of or relevant to it."
