Don’t get me wrong. I am excited and encouraged to know that certain members of the House recognized the need for cybersecurity awareness training for everyone in Congress and presented this legislation. But I must admit that I am a bit sad and discouraged that it will take a literal act of Congress to force our government to train and prepare itself for these types of threats.
As the article mentions, this move is quite a few years late in terms of a best practices approach to cybersecurity. Let’s hope it passes and our government can take another small step forward in the fight against cyber crime. Let’s also hope that all other branches of our government see the value of this training and follow suit!
