White House Sets Out Cyber Security Plan

The White House has announced a far-reaching legislative proposal for cyber security. The plan proposal would standardize data breach reporting requirements, clarify penalties for computer crime, and create a regulatory framework for critical infrastructure. However, the plan also enables greater data collection across the federal government and expanded electronic surveillance. EPIC has previously called for cyber security legislation that strengthens security standards, requires encryption, promotes agency accountability, and safeguards personal data and privacy. EPIC has several pending FOIA lawsuits concerning the Administration's cyber security programs, including the Google/NSA collaboration. For more information, see EPIC: Cybersecurity and Privacy.
