National Security Agency Director and U.S. Cyber Command chief Gen. Keith Alexander warned that cyberattacks against U.S. critical infrastructure will continue if Congress fails to pass a bill requiring information-sharing between government and industries. "Somebody who has a database that can look at the foreign and the domestic numbers can ... get the information back quickly and can tell you where there's a threat and where there's not," Alexander said. But the chances of passing major cybersecurity legislation this year are dim, according to Roll Call.
