Cybersecurity Bill Fails in U.S. Senate

It looks as though that cybersecurity bill being voted on yesterday was defeated in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 51 - 47.

"It is disappointing that senators haven't yet been able to reach an agreement on cybersecurity legislation -- but stalemate doesn't make the issue go away," BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman said in a statement. "There is no getting around the fact that we need to bolster America's cybersecurity capabilities. We urge both parties to put this issue at the top of the agenda in the next Congress."
