Henry Young, policy director for BSA | The Software Alliance, told Nextgov that Langevin’s amendment for the current NDAA, “certainly proposed for all the right reasons, increases complexity and uncertainty.”
“To the extent it adds an additional category and attendant requirements,” Young said of the amendment, “it misses a better opportunity to improve cybersecurity: simplifying requirements and providing certainty, which will allow organizations to focus on developing innovative cybersecurity solutions and less on compliance.”
