Schiff is Original Coauthor of Bipartisan Legislation to Combat Computer Crimes and Ensure Data Security
Representative Adam Schiff today announced that he has joined in introducing bipartisan legislation that would better combat cyber crime and protect data security. In an era of increasingly sophisticated computer technology, the "Cyber-Security Enhancement and Consumer Data Protection Act of 2006" (H.R. 5318) would provide better data security protections for both individuals and businesses and give to law enforcement the tools they need to successfully track and prosecute cyber criminals.
"Criminals are increasingly using new technologies to prey upon their victims," Schiff said. "As they adapt to these new opportunities to defraud, we must develop new ways to track them down and put them away. This legislation will help better protect Americans and American businesses from the costly effects of cyber crime and identity theft."
