Cyber Security Law Fails To Pass Senate

A last ditch effort to pass the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 has failed by 8 votes. The bill would create a set of standards for companies to meet for security protocol. The bill will be revisited sometime next year.

Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency and head of U.S. Cyber Command, said there had been a "twentyfold" increase in cyberattacks on critical infrastructure from 2009 to 2011.
