The Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (D-Calif)
It’s only a matter of time before Congress begins to seriously investigate and propose legislation to help ensure a secure and safe cyber environment in our schools and public colleges, both private and public, throughout the United States of America.
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) recently introduced in Congress a Cybersecurity Act with “legislative priority,” that would be a very comprehensive piece of legislation that would add to the existing federal network security legislation that is already in place. The legislation would be a new element of the federal network security and information security network of the Department of Homeland Security, along with the Department of Justice, under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. The bill also would expand cybersecurity education and training programs and would work on better cyber defense capabilities by incorporating real-time cyber protection programs in every school and community.
This bill would require that all federal colleges and universities and all public colleges and universities to have a cyber threat prevention and response program and a cyber education plan in place. Additionally, the bill would require that all school districts and high schools have cyber security and cyber education programs under their umbrella for their general education requirements. Additionally, the bill would require that the Secretary of Education include a cyber threat prevention and response program in every federal high school program. The bill would also require that all universities and colleges have a cyber knowledge and skills program. The bill would require all private schools and colleges to have a cyber education program under the umbrella of the Federal Department of Education.
The bill is seeking to “enhance federal cyber capabilities through a broad-based effort” and is also seeking to make the government “more responsible in protecting our information systems.
This bill would provide enhanced tools to federal public and private colleges and universities and public colleges and universities as part of their general education requirements and public high schools. The bill would require that the Department of Education provide a cyber security plan on cybersecurity for each school they administer. The bill would require that the Department of Transportation and the Department of Labor include a Cybersecurity Plan as part of their education requirements. The bill also would require that the Department of Health and Human Services, including the Secretary of Health and Human Services, provide a Cybersecurity Plan.
The Enhanced K-12 Cybersecurity Act (D-Calif.)

The Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (CSA), with its provisions for the creation of a national cybersecurity hub, has been on the back burner for several years. The legislation, if enacted, would provide a framework for a more proactive security environment for school-aged children. As a result, schools have been encouraged to focus on security education, but as many people are aware, a great deal of school security work that is not tied to a cyber hub is being done through the use of handheld devices, tablets, and other digital devices.
Many school districts and schools are exploring the technology possibilities of the cyber hub initiative. Several school systems are already exploring the possibilities of using the K-12 Cybersecurity Act as a portal to cyber education and cyber security training, and a number of districts have formed partnerships with cyber hub sites such as Netvibes. The Partnership for Advanced School Cybersecurity (PASSC) is another example of a cyber hub that has expanded with the cyber hub initiative.
The National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which runs during the month of October, is an opportunity to focus attention on the importance of cybersecurity and the need for increased awareness. The National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is the brainchild of the U. The goal of NCSAM is to raise awareness and improve awareness of vulnerabilities in the federal government’s web. This event offers an opportunity to focus on cybersecurity and public awareness.
A number of state legislatures have also recognized the need for more cyber education and awareness. In Virginia, the state Cyber Security Program (Virginia) has identified cyber education and awareness as a priority and created the Virginia Cyber Academy to support Virginia’s Cyber Security Program. The Virginia Cyber Academy also offers cyber security training to individuals, as well as, offers courses focused on law enforcement, homeland security, health care, and other public safety sectors. Virginia’s Cyber Security Program is accredited by the Association for Computing Machinery.
The Common Core State Standards for Computing in Virginia are the state’s highest standards of proficiency for computers and related software. This is the first time the state of Virginia and its public schools have implemented the state’s own “computing” standards. The state’s education department has recently released a new set of standards for the Common Core State Standards for Computing in which the standards now include software.

This article summarizes research findings by two leading research groups involved in educating the U. public about cyber security. The research is summarized, as well as background, on U. Department of Homeland Security (U. DHS) and the U. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) in order to help inform the public, teachers, students, and policymakers about threats to U. cyber security and what can be done to protect the U. public and other critical infrastructures from cyber attacks. The research was funded by the National Institute of Justice.

Tips of the Day in Computer Security
This is a really interesting look at some of the challenges of using two separate languages and techniques to get better security with open source tools.
I think it’s not a coincidence that my interest at least started with this topic. As I get older, I have become more interested in all sorts of things — including security.
I think I was a bit skeptical when I first picked up on this idea about an open source security tool suite. After reviewing the tools you can write, it made sense to me to write one and use it as a guide for other people.
It was a short jump from that.
In the last couple of months, I’ve been working with some great security tools and I’ve come full circle. I find that using the Open Source Security Tool Suite (OSSSTS) to get things done has been quite rewarding. It’s actually a lot of fun to do and it’s certainly worth the investment. From this end, I have to say I am most anxious to get things done using the tools.
In some ways the journey has been really interesting.
