The third part of The Communicators series on cybersecurity includes two critics of the White House cybersecurity legislative proposal. Marc Rotenberg, executive director of Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), expresses concern about personal privacy as the White House proposes prevention and responses to cybersecurity threats.
Larry Clinton, president of the Internet Security Alliance, also has concerns, though they differ from Rotenberg's. Clinton questions the Department of Homeland Security's role and is concerned that private businesses do not have a large enough seat at the table.
The White House gave its cybersecurity legislative ideas to Congress in May, two years after the Obama adminsitration produced Cyberspace Policy Review, a report outlining security needs.
In the previous program of the series, The Communicators spoke with U.S. Representatives Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Mac Thornberry (R-TX) about the White House proposal and Congress' role in cybersecurity.
The Communicators airs Saturday at 6:30 pm ET on C‑SPAN and Monday at 8 am and 8 pm ET on C‑SPAN 2.
