Lawmakers and the White House are making progress on developing a cybersecurity bill and negotiating issues such as what role agencies including the Department of Homeland Security would have in fighting cyberthreats and attacks. The goal, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., is to have a bill to vote on by April. The White House is also asking for help from the private sector in the implementation of President Barack Obama's recent executive order on cybersecurity, as private companies utilize more than half of the country's infrastructure.
