Schumer calls for $1 trillion to protect infrastructure against cyberattacks

WASHINGTON – Recent reports of possible hacking of critical infrastructure have prompted Senator Charles Schumer to renew his call for a 10-year, $1 trillion plan to protect it from attacks.

Schumer said recently revealed cyberattacks should be a wakeup call to prevent the nation from being crippled by a successful attack.

“We need to pass a real infrastructure plan, one that won’t just rebuild our roads and bridges and schools, but one that will also protect critical infrastructure for cyber threats,” he said.

Schumer also asked the departments of Homeland Security and Energy to provide updates on their efforts to assess the resilience of and protection of critical infrastructure networks.
