TechNet Pushes Cyber Measures in Defense Bill

TechNet is urging the lawmakers who are negotiating the annual defense policy bill to establish a national cyber director at the White House, as recommended by the Cyberspace Solarium Commission. They also are asking Congress to avoid restrictions on the Department of Defense's purchase of commercial products that use printed circuit boards — a subject of discussion among lawmakers trying to keep adversaries' tech out of the department. TechNet said such restrictions could harm American companies, too. The group also opposes proposed language that it says would hamper cyberthreat information sharing.
