Dear All,

The US Senate has introduced a new Cybersecurity Bill through Senators John
D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV, Chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science, and
Transportation Committee, Tom Carper, incoming Chairman of the Senate
Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Dianne Feinstein,
Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence where they made a
Press Release, see:

This is interesting and relevant as far as it pertains to critical
information infrastructure that the US considers to be part of the US
Infrastructure. Whilst the models point to public private collaboration
which makes sense because it is the private sector that controls much of
the infrastructure anyway except in situations where if there were a State
of Emergency and the rights to control/access infrastructure by the State
and it has its challenges.

This Bill affects ICANN's operations as well hence the relevance.

Kind Regards,
