Computer security

A bill designed to enhance computer security at government facilities became P.L. 108-281. The law authorizes the Judicial Conference of the United States to enact rules to protect the privacy and security of documents that are filed electronically with the government. The rules must consider the best practices currently in use in federal and state courts to protect information security. The final rule, according to the new law, should be uniformly applied across the judicial system.
