On May 29 President Barack Obama introduced his administration's new report on cybersecurity in the United States entitled Cyberspace Policy Review: Assuring a Trusted and Resilient Information and Communications Infrastructure.
Introduced just last week in the Senate, rather quietly, was the new Cybersecurity Act of 2009. Proposed by Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.) and Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), the legislation, in part, calls for the establishment of a national cybersecurity adviser, a cyber czar as it were. But, it’s getting a big boost now.
Google, the internationally popular Internet search engine, is under fire. Christine A. Varney, President Barack Obama's nominee to be the next antitrust chief at the Justice Department, has publicly branded Google as a monopoly.
