Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-CT) echoed President Obama's call in the State of the Union for Congress to pass comprehensive cybersecurity legislation.
“The President’s call for Congress to pass cybersecurity legislation underscores the pressing nature of securing the government’s cyber systems and networks — and a limited number of private sector networks that touch the lives of all Americans," Chairman Lieberman said. “This is nothing less than a matter of national security. The Secretary of Defense has warned that the next Pearl Harbor could be a cyber attack." "As Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, I fully support efforts to protect our national security by passing cyber security legislation. I have been working for years to address our country's vulnerability to cyber-attacks and believe now is the time for Congress to act," said Senate Commerce Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-WV).
