  • The U.S. Senate passed the Strengthening American Cybersecurity Act, a package of bills presented by Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., to enhance U.S. cybersecurity. The legislation would require companies involved in critical infrastructure, including energy and health care, to report cyberattacks and ransomware payments. A 72-hour breach reporting requirement is also included. The bill moved to the U.S. House for further consideration.

    The Bill is typically lengthy and thus, open for the editors' pen.  One aspect in particular caught my attention.  Read this section below and keep in mind one of the harsh, but poignant findings of the 911 Commission.  The attacks of September 11, 2001 were successful in large measure because of a "failure of imagination".  Too often (and I admit having been personally stung), leadership views these types of scenarios as "doomsday" conjurings of the over imaginative. To the contrary, in sports terms, it is merely scouting your opponent.
