Overview of Cybersecurity Legislative Debates

Luke and I wrote a “conversation” column in the Sacramento Bee, published Easter Sunday. The story is available here. Thanks to all those who have discussed these issues with us.

Here is the last paragraph. The entire article is worth reading as an overview, in our opinion:

One way to increase our security is to raise the level of discourse, understanding and involvement of more Americans in this important debate. This can be accomplished in part by understanding different cyberthreats and understanding the potential threats to civil liberties. This would place policymakers and the public on a similar footing for discussing the issues. Doing so will also help to ensure that decisions about our economy and security are made as democratically as possible, in the open and not taken without adequate public discussion about the role of industry, the leadership of civilian authorities and the protection of civil liberties.
