Washington, D.C. – May 17, 2017 – The Coalition for Cybersecurity Policy and Law issued the following statement to support the introduction of the bipartisan, bicameral PATCH Act announced today in response to the WannaCry cyberattacks over the weekend:

“We support the goals of the PATCH Act and we look forward to working with Chairman Johnson, Senators Schatz and Gardner, and Reps. Lieu and Farenthold as it moves forward in both chambers. The events of the past week clearly demonstrate the real-world consequences of exploited vulnerabilities.
