From last year’s attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment to this summer’s breach of the Office of Personnel and Management, which compromised the records of as many as 18 million people, numerous high-profile and damaging cyberattacks over the past several years have finally prompted a response from Congress. On Friday, landmark cybersecurity legislation tucked into a major $1.1 trillion spending package passed the House by a vote of 316-113. The Senate later backed the bill 65-33, sending it to President Obama, who signed it into law Friday afternoon.
