Cybersecurity legislation continues to make the news this morning.  NextGov is reporting that an overhaul is likely, as Defense bills with cybersecurity provisions continue to gain support in the Senate and House.  Meanwhile, Internet News says that the Defense bill, passed in the House on Friday, could revise US cybersecurity.

In energy-related news, the Heritage Foundation reports, “The DOE spent nine years and $153 million on an obsolete cybersecurity project that was supposed to safeguard America’s nuclear weapons information.”  Meanwhile, according to Network World, the North American Electric Reliability Corp. warns that cyber attacks are a top threat to the nation’s power grid.
