Secret Service urges US lawmakers to do more on cyber crime

The Secret Service on Monday urged US lawmakers to do more to prevent the types of cyber thefts of consumer information that recently have hit Target Corp and other major retailers.


"Legislative action could help to improve the nation's cybersecurity, reduce regulatory costs on US companies, and strengthen law enforcement's ability to conduct effective investigations," said William Noonan, a top agent with the Secret Service's cyber operations branch. (Reuters)
