House passes bill to target foreign cyber threats

Sep 8, 2018
In The News

The House passed a bill this week that would direct the White House to form a database "containing all the names of individuals and cyber-threat groups associated with foreign cyber-espionage operations" targeting the U.S., ZDNet reports.

The big picture: Per ZDNet, government-level hacking has been "out of control" as the world entered the digital age. The bill, called the Cyber Deterrence and Response Act of 2018 and proposed by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), aims to identify and track groups to better confront attacks. A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Cory Gardner in August.
