Louis Freeh, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Technology Subcommittee March 28, said that, “[J]ust as computer crime has evolved and mutated … so too must our laws and procedures evolve to meet the changing nature of these crimes.” In response, senators promoted various bills to combat cyberattacks and announced the formation of a Senate working group to be the clearinghouse on cybersafety.
Freeh testified that, “In the cyber equivalent of an arms race, exploits evolve as hackers design variations to evade or overcome detection software and filters.” He urged Congress to support the Cyberspace Electronic Security Act, which was proposed by the Department of Justice last winter to strengthen investigative techniques available to law enforcers and increase resources for cyberinvestigation.
