Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus Launches Website

Aug 2, 2010

WARWICK, R.I. – Congressmen Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Mike McCaul (R-TX) today launched a new Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus website. The new online presence is intended to allow the public to have access to news and information in regard to cybersecurity policy.

“This new page will help us further the mission of the caucus and allow us to continue to raise awareness about the importance of securing our nation’s cyber infrastructure – from large government agencies to our home networks,” said Langevin, caucus founder and co-chair. “Congress plays a key role in the future of cybersecurity policy. Please check the site frequently for updates about caucus activities as well as for the latest news and resources.”

“The cyber threat is not science-fiction; it’s reality, and it needs to be taken seriously,” said McCaul, caucus co-founder and co-chair. “We need to educate Americans so they have a clear understanding of how the threat has evolved the severity of it, and the need to secure our networks. This site will go a long way toward that goal.”

The site, http://cybercaucus.langevin.house.gov/ , includes links to important cyber sites including the US Cyber Command and the CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency, as well as helpful advice on how to secure personal computers and networks.
