We have routinely supported those who call for the overhaul of the Federal Information Security Management Act and highlight the need for more effective, real-time situational awareness in securing federal information systems. So the long-awaited cybersecurity bill (S. 3480) introduced in the Senate June 10 by Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Thomas Carper (D-Del.) is welcome news — and an important milestone that should draw cheers from many quarters.
