Cybersecurity experts applauded the introduction of a new Senate bill in July that would mandate minimum security standards for the growing number of internet-connected devices and sensors used by the federal government.

The bipartisan bill, called the Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017, is sponsored by the co-chairs of the Senate Cybersecurity Caucus, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., and Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Steve Daines, R-Mont.
