Cyber/Data Security & Privacy

Information and network security continues to be a high-priority national security and economic issue.  For companies providing an array of communications services, the need to ensure the integrity of their networks is paramount given the increase in cyber intrusions and attacks on government, business and individual systems.

In February 2013, the President signed Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity as an attempt to increase the protection of the nation’s critical infrastructure and further cooperation between private industry and federal agencies in these efforts.  As this Executive Order and numerous legislative proposals in Congress seek to determine the federal role in protecting critical infrastructure, it is important that they are coordinated with private industry efforts and ensure the protection of consumer privacy and civil liberties.
