Cybersecurity Act of 2010

The proposed Cybersecurity Act of 2010 sounds good. Funding scholarships and academic programs is very good - having more and better training people is ultimately the best thing we can do for cybersecurity (more so I believe than any technology advancement).

Increasing collaboration between public and private security, as well as organizing the federal government are also good goals, but a high bar. Just think how well we've managed to organize existing law enforcement - it's a tough task filled with lots of turf wars and communications challenges.

Edited to add: This bill would be reconciled with the CyberSecurity Enhancement Bill I blogged about previous.
