US Cybersecurity Bill Would Set Standards For Govt, Pvt Cos


online.wsj.com

U.S. Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Rockefeller, D-W.Va., on Wednesday introduced legislation to establish auditable, enforceable cybersecurity standards for both the government and the private sector.
The bill would create a national cybersecurity officer within the executive office of the president. That person would be responsible for a comprehensive national cybersecurity strategy, coordinating government and private companies' activities if the bill were to become law.

Cybersecurity is a top priority for Rockefeller, who formerly was chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Rockefeller now will use his Commerce Committee gavel to shine a light on the cyber threats faced by the country, particularly in the private sector.

The U.S. has some mechanisms in place to protect its sensitive government secrets from cyber espionage. But Rockefeller believes cyber attacks on the private sector - banking, utilities, air/rail/auto traffic control, and telecommunications - could shut down Americans' way of life.
Rockefeller's bill would create a public-private clearinghouse for cyber threat and vulnerability information sharing.


A public-private clearinghouse for cyber threats and vulnerability information sharing?

This is just a step toward controlling the internet and nothing else. And can someone tell me what does public slash private mean???

Senate Legislation Would Federalize Cybersecurity

the legislation also calls for the appointment of a White House cybersecurity "czar" with unprecedented authority to shut down computer networks, including private ones, if a cyberattack is underway, the officials said.

Listen closely people.

The "internet" was designed to maintain communications in the event of a FULL SCALE NUCLEAR WAR with Russia. Does something like that sound like it is easily broken?

Now, look up who wants to control the internet because it's "used by terrorists". See if the name looks familiar to the article posted by the OP.

What they are REALLY afraid of is that the internet is the last bastion of truly free speech left in America. They know that the NEXT false flag is going to be scrutinized by more people, more quickly, than they know how to handle. When you see big sections of the internet out, for an extended period, know that martial law is right on the doorsteps, and banging on the door.

One more thing: They are now trying to hide the fact that the internet was designed to (repeating for effect) MAINTAIN COMMUNICATIONS IN THE EVENT OF A FULL SCALE NUCLEAR WAR WITH RUSSIA. Anyone who says otherwise is either 1) A disinfo agent, or 2) ignorant. Disbelieve me? Get a book about the history of the internet circa 98 or so. You can also look up the quotes from the guys who designed it. Only don't look up "internet", look up "darpanet" or "arpanet".
