Washington, D.C. — Rep. Ben Ray Luján voted to pass the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2009, which will improve the security of cyberspace by supporting research on innovative, transformative technologies and ensuring federal investments in cybersecurity are more focused and effective.
When the legislation was in the House Committee on Science and Technology, Rep. Luján added an amendment to address disparities in the Federal Cyber Scholarship for Service Program and help tribal communities protect themselves from cyber criminals. The legislation passed the House by a vote of 422 to 5.
“More and more Americans rely on the Internet for their day to day activities,” Luján said. “Families buy clothing, groceries and even homes online. People network in hopes of finding a job or connecting with friends. This means that every day more people rely on secure networks to keep their personal information safe. The Cybersecurity Enhancement Act legislation will help make our experience online safer and more secure.”
Luján’s amendment addresses any potential regional disparities in the Federal Cyber Scholarship for Service Program, providing local companies, organizations and government agencies in New Mexico and throughout the southwest with access to locally trained talent.
