Graham bills target cybercrime and election interference
Senator Lindsey Graham is part of a bi-partisan move in the Congress to enhance cyber-crime prevention and strengthen the U-S election infrastructure. South Carolina Republican Graham, along with Democrats Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Blumenthal of Connecticut, introduced two pieces of legislation. The International Cybercrime Prevention Act would give prosecutors new tools to fight cybercrime, including the capability to shut down networks of compromised computers that Russia and other hostile actors use to spread dis-information. The Defending the Integrity of Voting Systems Act, would make it a federal crime to hack any voting systems used in a federal election.
