The “Morning Cybersecurity” report from Politico had a number of items of interest yesterday. First, they report on an update from US-CERT that will change the system for reporting cybersecurity incidents on federal networks. It’s expected to go into effect by October 1. Further, Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE) is expected to circulate a federal data breach bill this week, which would go before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He’s looking for democratic cosponsors before bringing the bill forward. In other legislative news, the FY15 State and Foreign Operations Appropriations bill supports funding to continue for implementing the White House’s International Strategy for Cyberspace. Finally, there is a note on YouTube and its 38,000 instructional videos on obtaining stolen credit card numbers, discovered by the Digital Citizens Alliance.
