Some good news: Cybersecurity Enhancement Bill passed by house

The house passed what looks like a very well thought out CyberSecurity Enhancement Bill. What I like about it in particular is it has an educational aspect and a social/behavior research aspect to it, both under the auspices of the National Science Foundation (NSF). I think this is a great direction - ultimately having more, better trained cybersecurity professionals and understanding the end-users better is at least as good as any new technology to make us safer. And having NSF do this gives me great confidence that the results will have broad impact rather than being sequestered as "sensitive".
