Cyber security is becoming an increasingly dangerous issue from several perspectives — not only from an actual security standpoint, but from the aspect that new laws can be manipulated (by the powers that be) to limit internet and file/information sharing and access amongst the general populace.
CFR backed figurehead Eric Fischer, Senior Specialist in Science and Technology for the Congressional Research Service(CRS) prepared and released a white paper in late 2011 entitled, Federal Laws Relating to Cybersecurity: Discussion of Proposed Revisions in which the summary reads;
For more than a decade, various experts have expressed increasing concerns about cybersecurity, in light of the growing frequency, impact, and sophistication of attacks on information systems in the United States and abroad. Consensus has also been building that the current legislative framework for cybersecurity might need to be revised.
The complex federal role in cybersecurity involves both securing federal systems and assisting in protecting nonfederal systems. Under current law, all federal agencies have cybersecurity responsibilities relating to their own systems, and many have sector-specific responsibilities for critical infrastructure.
More than 50 statutes address various aspects of cybersecurity either directly or indirectly, but there is no overarching framework legislation in place. While revisions to most of those laws have been proposed over the past few years, no major cybersecurity legislation has been enacted since 2002.
