U.S. Suspects Contaminated Foreign-Made Components Threaten Cyber Security


And while cyber security has been traditionally treated as a non-partisan issue, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, stirred up controversy last week by appointing a Republican-only cyber security taskforce in the House.

Rep. Jim Langevin, D-R.I., a long-time cyber security advocate, expressed his displeasure with the decision but said he remains committed to working with Republicans to help improve national cyber security.

"I am deeply disappointed in this decision, but have developed strong relationships with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and will continue my push to ensure that we finally address the structural problems that have persisted in our policy and that have allowed our nation to remain vulnerable online," Langevin said.

Congress is expected to take up cyber security legislation this session and still remains a top priority for the Obama administration.
