BSA | The Software Alliance Commends Introduction of Federal Computer Security Act
WASHINGTON — August 5, 2015 — BSA | The Software Alliance applauds Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) for their leadership in introducing the Federal Computer Security Act.
“To safeguard our government’s most sensitive information, our federal agencies must use the most up-to-date security practices,” said Victoria Espinel, President and CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance.
“In order to accomplish this goal, Congress needs a better understanding of the security-related practices and software currently in use by our agencies. Ensuring that agencies and their contractors are using the best security practices, including using only genuine and fully licensed software on their systems, will help strengthen their cybersecurity efforts and keep sensitive information out of the wrong hands. BSA and our member companies look forward to working with Senator Hatch and other members of the Senate to continue to improve the security of our government’s computer systems, and this bill represents an important first step to achieving this goal.”
