Klobuchar To Introduce Bill On ‘Cloud Computing’ Laws

WASHINGTON (WCCO) — Sen. Amy Klobuchar will be introducing a bill aimed at making the Internet even safer. It’ll be geared towards something called “Cloud Computing.”

“Clouds” are the term used for internet data centers that you can store and share data anytime and anywhere from your PC, Laptop, TV or smart phone. Sites like Facebook or email groups like Gmail are both examples of “Clouds.”

The new legislation calls for negotiations with other countries to make sure we are all on the same page and have similar laws to address online security.

It would create new enforcement tools to investigate and prosecute hackers. Also, it would require every federal agency to have a cloud computing plan.
