BSA Statement On White House Engagement With Industry On Cybersecurity Policy

Listening session gives stakeholders an opportunity to air practical considerations

WASHINGTON, DC -- October 17, 2012 -- BSA | The Software Alliance today welcomed efforts by the White House to engage with industry stakeholders on key aspects of cybersecurity policy.

"The Administration deserves kudos for actively listening to industry perspectives on cybersecurity policy," said BSA Director of Government Relations Tim Molino after a Wednesday afternoon "listening session" at the White House. "We appreciate that Cybersecurity Coordinator Michael Daniel and his colleagues are weighing practical concerns as the President considers a possible executive order."

"BSA agrees with the Administration that at the end of the day we need Congress to pass legislation," said Molino. "We look forward to continuing to work with Members of Congress and the Administration to shape the cybersecurity policy that America desperately needs."
