Cybersecurity bill would create costly regulations, say critics

Grant Gross | Feb. 17, 2012
Leaders in the U.S. Senate are trying to fast-track new cybersecurity legislation that will create costly new regulations for some businesses, some critics said Thursday.

"This bill is urgent," Collins said. "We can't wait to act. We cannot wait until our country has a catastrophic cyberattack."

Janet Napolitano, current secretary at DHS, and Stewart Baker, a former official at DHS and the NSA, both voiced support for the bill.

Although some critics have called for a stripped-down bill that deals mainly with security efforts at government agencies, "now is not the time for half-measures," Napolitano said.
