Here at McAfee, we’ve always made an effort to work side by side with legislators on Capitol Hill to support Congress’s efforts to safeguard the nation’s cyber networks from attack. Network security has always been a major priority of our company, and we are pleased to see that Congress is making it a priority as well.
Today Senators Lieberman, Collins and Carper officially introduced legislation called the “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010.” The goal of this bill is to not only modernize the government’s ability to safeguard the nation’s cyber networks, but to also bring government and industry together to set national cybersecurity priorities and improve national cybersecurity defenses.
The Senators and their staff must be commended for reaching out to the IT industry while crafting this legislation. IT industry representatives were able to offer their expertise to help the Senators create a comprehensive bill that will help secure our Federal government and our nation’s critical infrastructures.
We look forward to continuing our work alongside legislators and our colleagues in the IT industry to continue to refine the bill. McAfee is proud to work with our industry colleagues to advocate in support of strong cybersecurity rules to help ensure that a networked nation is a secure nation.
