Statement from Pentagon Press Secretary George Little on the Cybersecurity Act of 2012

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–November 15, 2012. 

Secretary Panetta was disappointed to learn that the Senate failed to move forward on the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, which would have enhanced our nation’s ability to protect itself against cyber threats, which are growing at an alarming rate.  Cyber attacks threaten to have crippling effects on America’s critical infrastructure, and on our government and private sector systems.  The U.S. defense strategy calls for greater investments in cybersecurity measures, and we will continue to explore ways to defend the nation against cyber threats.  New legislation would have enhanced those efforts.  If the Congress neglects to address this security problem urgently, the consequences could be devastating.
