US to strengthen cyber security laws

Pres. Obama is pushing for stronger cyber security laws considering all the recent hacking. Proposals are going to Congress soon. Read more about it here http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2015/01/brits-drive-left/?utm_source=bbc.com&utm_medium=promo%20module&utm_campaign=Channel%20Module

Friday update on this notes that Pres. Obama's proposal "would allow private companies to share information about cyber threats more freely with government agencies, and it would protect the companies who do so from lawsuits.
Other proposals include criminalizing the sale of stolen financial data, and requiring companies to notify consumers about data breaches."

I note that there is nothing about going after the cyber criminals or better defining cyber crime or punishment for it or about working with non-American sources to combat it.
