The 113th Congress will bring new leadership to the House Homeland Security Committee and the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committees — all responsible for cybersecurity issues. President Obama is expected to release an Executive Order (based on the draft circulated in late November 2012) very soon, perhaps before the State of the Union address. House Speaker Boehner extended an invitation to the President last week to deliver the SOTU address on February 12th. Add to that the fact that online and mobile privacy remain priorities in the 113th Congress, and we should have a very busy session.
