(Worthy News) – The House of Representatives has passed legislation directing the president to essentially name and shame foreign hackers accused of participating in state-sponsored cyberattacks against the United States government and the nation’s most vital computer networks.
Introduced by Rep. Ted Yoho, California Republican, the Cyber Deterrence and Response Act garnered the support of 13 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle prior to being passed by a voice vote Wednesday on Capitol Hill.
“Today we took an important step in defending our nation from foreign cyber threats,” Mr. Yoho said in statement afterwards. “Our foreign adversaries have developed sophisticated cyber capabilities that disrupt our networks, threaten our critical infrastructure, harm our economy and undermine our elections. Collectively, we must do more to combat this digital menace.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
