HR 3490 Passes in House

This afternoon the House passed HR 3490, the Strengthening State and Local Cyber Crime Fighting Act, by a voice vote after only 14 minutes of debate. The bill will proceed to the Senate where, if it is considered, it will likely be under their unanimous consent process with even less debate.

The bill and the National Computer Forensics Institute both continue to ignore potential issues with forensics investigations of attacks on industrial control systems. If the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee does take up consideration of this bill (probably unlikely) it would be nice to see some sort of language encouraging the development of forensics capability for ICS attacks before they become necessary.
