The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday (February 4) overwhelmingly approved a bill aimed at protecting the Internet and vulnerable computer networks by funding cybersecurity research and training.

The cybersecurity legislation, which was approved by a vote of 422 to five, allocates funding to improve cybersecurity in the federal government and the public and private sectors. It calls for the training of a skilled workforce, cybersecurity research and development and public education efforts.

The U.S. Senate is also considering cybersecurity legislation which contains more sweeping measures.
