bdub77: Why not criminal?


cause civil means money... lots of money and will actually affect the execs that make the decisions.  (stock options)

plus. then investors can file fiduciary duty lawsuits at the actual execs, stripping them of position and compensation

This is long overdue.

"The Civil Cyber-Fraud Initiative will utilize the False Claims Act, aka the "Lincoln Law," which serves as a litigative tool to the government when placing liability on those who defraud government programs.

"The act includes a unique whistleblower provision, which allows private parties to assist the government in identifying and pursuing fraudulent conduct and to share in any recovery and protects whistleblowers who bring these violations and failures from retaliation," explained the DOJ in a press release.

The initiative will hold entities, such as federal contractors or individuals, accountable when they put US cyber infrastructure at risk by knowingly "providing deficient cybersecurity products or services, knowingly misrepresenting their cybersecurity practices or protocols, or knowingly violating obligations to monitor and report cybersecurity incidents and breaches." "

And companies not reporting breaches can be barred from seeking any other work for the federal government.

This is sure to drive down the amount of money the government spends on its contracts :(
