Senate Committee Holds Hearing on Cybersecurity Bill

The Senate Homeland Security Committee held a first hearing on the recently introduced cybersecurity bill, the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010. The hearing (video) featured testimony from Philip Reitinger at the Department of Homeland Security, as well as several industry representatives. Many of the committee's questions focused on whether authority over civilian cybersecurity should be concentrated in the Department of Homeland Security or in the Department of Defense, a question on which EPIC has repeatedly sought information.
