Langevin Introduces Resolution in Support of National Cybersecurity Commission
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, introduced a resolution yesterday in support of the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, which was established by Executive Order from President Barack Obama. “The economic competitiveness and the national security of the United States are integrally tied to the security of our information systems, and this kind of far-reaching action is exactly what we need to move forward in closing our aperture of vulnerability in cyberspace,” said Langevin. “Strengthening our network security and protecting critical infrastructure against cyber attack requires a partnership between government, industry, academia, and security researchers, and this commission brings those stakeholders to the table to ensure we are putting best practices into effect and protecting American interests at home and abroad.” The establishment of the national commission was part of President Obama’s Cybe

Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC), issued the following statement in response to passage of the FY17 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA): “I have no greater responsibility as a Member of Congress than the promise to keep Americans safe, protect our national security, and support the men and women who defend our freedom. Historically, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has been a bipartisan vehicle to provide this defense, and while I find many of its current provisions, as well as its funding approach, deeply concerning, I strongly believe these deficiencies will be overcome as the legislative process moves forward. Passing an NDAA that supports our troops and our national defense is absolutely critical, which is why I voted in favor of today’s proposal and am eager to get to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to reach a bipartisan compromise. “Of the many good provisions in the bill, I am p
