A new Senate bill would require organizations to report cyber hacks to the government within 24 hours. The bill is the latest attempt to face the growing issue of cyber breaches in the public and private sectors.

  • Tony Scott, former federal chief information officer and now chief executive officer of The TonyScottGroup, said he thinks the bill is a positive step and moves the needle in the right direction.
  • Scott said it could reduce the time between discovery of a breach and reporting and could help educate legislators and agency leaders about the severity of cyber incidents.
  • Scott said the implementation guidelines should provide clarity on what constitutes a breach and when the 24-hour period starts.
