The Cyberlaw Podcast – Interview with United States Representative Tom Graves

Posted in Cybersecurity and Cyberwar, Data Breach, Privacy Regulation, Security Programs & Policies

Episode 189: Hack Back in Black: Interviewing United States Representative Tom Graves about the ACDC act.

Today’s bonus episode is an interview with Rep. Graves, co-sponsor of the Active Cyber Defense Certainty (ACDC) Act, which allows those whose networks are under persistent attack to leave their network to conduct investigative action. Rep. Graves offers a measured but deeply felt defense of the proposal and is optimistic about its reception.  And, with the hard-hitting investigative approach the Cyberlaw Podcast is known for, I ask the tough question:  “Is this bill a tribute to AC/DC – and if so, which song?”  (Hint in the title of the post.)

Mark your calendars for November 7th when we will gather for a live taping of a special episode on Election Cybersecurity at our Dupont Circle offices here in DC. To register please visit the Events page of our website at steptoe.com.
