Keeping Your Data Safe

Foreign adversaries, like China and Russia, are taking every opportunity to threaten our national security. As a former counterintelligence officer, I know the latest threats are coming in cyberspace. It’s mission critical that we protect Americans’ private data and our national security by defending against these cyber threats.

In Congress, I’ve been leading the charge to protect Iowans in the future:

  • Keeping students in school by preventing and preparing for attacks with the bipartisan Enhancing K-12 Cybersecurity Act
  • Convening some of the brightest minds in cybersecurity to discuss new solutions for bolstering cybersecurity defenses
  • Ensuring our rural water systems are safe from bad actors with the bipartisan Cybersecurity for Rural Water Systems Act
  • Increasing collaboration within the federal government and intelligence agencies to combat cyberterrorism with the Financial Technology Protection Act
  • Protecting our nation’s food supply against foreign adversaries with the bipartisan Cybersecurity in Agriculture Act
  • Preventing another privacy disaster like TikTok by prohibiting the U.S. government from storing data on Chinese-made blockchain technology with the bipartisan CLARITY Act

Bottom Line: I’ll do everything I can to protect your private information and our national security. We must act before it’s too late.
