American Cable Association Issues Statement On FCC Chairman Genachowski’s Remarks About Cybersecurity

PITTSBURGH,  February 22, 2012 - ACA President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement on Federal Communications Commission Chairman Genachowski's remarks today regarding cybersecurity:

"ACA and its members agree with the FCC Chairman that there is a vital need to make sure our networks are protected from cybersecurity threats and applaud the Chairman for emphasizing the need for the development of practical solutions to minimize them. By encouraging the development of best practices that network providers could implement on a voluntary basis, and facilitating public/private collaboration, today's speech demonstrates that we're headed in the right direction. ACA looks forward to working with the FCC and other industry partners in reducing, if not completely eliminating, major threats to our networks."
