Verizon Supports Bipartisan House Cybersecurity Bill

Reps. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.), chairman and ranking member, respectively, of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, introduced legislation on Wednesday (Feb. 13) similar to cybersecurity legislation that passed the U.S. House of Representatives last April. The following statement should be attributed to Peter Davidson, Verizon senior vice president, federal government relations:

"Verizon supports legislation that boosts ongoing cybersecurity efforts and promotes the sharing of cyberthreat information among communications companies and federal agencies, provides appropriate liability protections and consumer privacy safeguards, and achieves greater cybersecurity without technology mandates or prescriptive rules. It's important that communications infrastructure providers retain the flexibility to implement all measures available to them to secure their networks and protect their customers.

"Verizon appreciates the leadership and dedication of the bill's principal authors, Reps. Mike Rogers and Dutch Ruppersberger, to build consensus around legislation on this important national security issue. Verizon will continue to work with key policymakers in Congress and the administration to achieve enactment of bipartisan, consensus cybersecurity legislation this year."
