Congress to step up its own cybersecurity protections



WASHINGTON — In the wake of charges that Russian hackers tried to destabilize the U.S. election, Congress will step up efforts to protect itself from cybersecurity attacks, including better training for lawmakers and staffers, said the head of the committee that oversees operations in the House.

“One of the biggest threats that we have here would be the security, in particular the cybersecurity threats, that we face," said Rep. Gregg Harper, R-Mississippi, the new chairman of the House Administration Committee. “Every office, every committee, every part of Capitol Hill is subject for attack by foreign governments, by individuals, people in this county who mean us harm."
