+ - Senate Bill: Gaining Emergency Control of Net

Submitted by
Jogar the Barbarian
Jogar the Barbarian writes "U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, a democrat from West Virginia, has (re)introduced the bill S.773 which would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for "cybersecurity professionals". From the article: "Representatives of other large Internet and telecommunications companies expressed concerns about the bill..." Yeah, no kidding!"
