Legislative bill would create ‘ethical hacker’ role for Nebraska State Patrol | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – A state senator is introducing a new bill that he says would help Nebraska fight cyber crime by “thinking like the enemy.”

Legislative Bill 1303 would require the Nebraska State Patrol to create a new position for an ethical hacker.

“Cybersecurity is a major issue. By enlisting the expertise of an ethical hacker with the Nebraska State Patrol, we take a proactive stance in mitigating cyber vulnerabilities,” Senator Loren Lippincott said.

Lippincott described the job as someone who would be in charge of constantly monitoring and protecting against cyber-attacks across the state. In addition, they would also pinpoint existing weaknesses within current networks to patch them up.

Lippincott emphasized that election security would be a major part of this role.

LB 1303 would still need to get voted out of the committee before it moves on.
