Delegate John J. Bell Introduces Cybersecurity Bills

CHANTILLY, Va: Today, Delegate John J. Bell (D - Loudoun) introduced several bills that help prepare Virginia for a 21st century economy. Delegate Bell said of the legislation:

"There are over 30,000 cyber jobs that are left open in Northern Virginia alone. Preparing our economy to make sure we can stay safe online is contingent upon making our laws compatible with online threats, and filling the jobs that help detect threats and keep our families safe."

HB 258 and HB 279 close loopholes in the current code so that computer crimes can be prosecuted.
