Cybersecurity: Will Federal Regulation Help?
With the Senate poised to consider comprehensive "cybersecurity" legislation this month, a bevy of questions need answers. Although it is difficult to secure computers, networks, and data, are government spending and regulation the answer? Are the cybersecurity threats touted in Washington real or trumped up? Should legal protections for privacy and other values give way in the name of "information sharing" with the Department of Homeland Security? Join us for a discussion with technology policy experts about cybersecurity's challenges and the approaches taken in current legislation.
