Senators Plan Cybersecurity Bill for Infrastructure

Leading U.S. senators plan to introduce a cybersecurity bill aimed at safeguarding the nation's water and power systems, which experts have warned often only have the most rudimentary protections against hackers. Senators John Rockefeller and Dianne Feinstein, both Democrats; Susan Collins, a Republican, and Joseph Lieberman, an independent, have drafted a comprehensive bill that would require the secretary of homeland security to designate certain infrastructure as critical and compel steps to safeguard against hackers.
