Obama Takes on Cybersecurity
Welcome to Washington’s cyberweek. A flurry of bills and projects will be announced this week, in advance of the annual State of the Union address and on the heels of some major issues (see: Sony hack). The measures would require firms to notify consumers of breaches faster, prohibit using student info for commercial purposes and make credit reports more accessible. Big Internet security thinkers say it doesn’t go far enough. Look for more details over the coming days, as well as Congressional plans of their own.
