re: Senate Bill Calls For 'Watch List' Of Nations Cyberspying On U.S., Trade Sanctions
I am very certain
that the Department of Defense would make a claim without full evidence of
backing up their claim. Furthermore DOD would not be so bold as to accuse
another government of cyber espionage. I
am surprised that there is currently not s list that exist already, sort of
troubling donGt you think? I do love the idea of starting top protect the
American peoples intellectual property from being stolen and also profited from
theft.

re: Senate Bill Calls For 'Watch List' Of Nations Cyberspying On U.S., Trade Sanctions
What "bills like this"? Some have been waiting for decades for a "bill like this"! Why would a bill defining the origins of "cybertheft" be "bad for Americans"? What is truly "bad for Americans" is being targeted and stolen from. Your statement assumes that there are no mechanisms in place for determining routing and rerouting, something that would have been partially handled by Net Neutrality, had it passed.

Americans deserve to be free from intruders and cyber criminals. The United States seriously needs an accounting of these crimes and a way to redress grievances. Imposing a block on stolen goods will be at least some form of justice. Obviously, you have not read the Mandiant report, which supplied effective proof of not only the origins of cybercrime originating from the Chinese military compound in Shanghai, China, but also discovered the real names, IP addresses, email addresses and physical addresses of the 3 Chinese military personnel who accomplished the Chinese cyberspying mission against the United States.

This is bad.
This "Deter Cyber Theft" bill will only place restrictions on the people of america, as bills like this always have.
Not only that, IP's do not equal persons, and with this, someone routing an IP through a remote country and attacking America would cause America to respond to said country.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
