After Failed Lame Duck Vote, BSA Urges Renewed Focus on Cybersecurity in 2013

WASHINGTON, DC — November 14, 2012

BSA | The Software Alliance today expressed disappointment that the US Senate failed to approve floor debate on cybersecurity legislation and urged lawmakers to put the issue at the top of the agenda when the 113th Congress convenes next year.

“It is disappointing that Senators haven’t yet been able to reach an agreement on cybersecurity legislation — but stalemate doesn’t make the issue go away,” said BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman. “There is no getting around the fact that we need to bolster America’s cybersecurity capabilities. We urge both parties to put this issue at the top of the agenda in the next Congress.”
