The Land of the Free, which revolted against a penny a year tax which was designed to pay for its defence, is ordering companies to turn over control of their networks to a government department. New laws are being drafted up which will give the Department of Homeland Security some amount of regulatory control over private networks.
"The Homeland Security Cyber and Physical Infrastructure Protection Act of 2010," will empower DHS to set cybersecurity standards for some private networks that are considered critical infrastructure.
It will create a Cybersecurity Compliance Division which will pop around and see if network managers are doing what the spooks say they should.
