The US Congress has been debating a cyber security bill this session and is close to passing something. Sadly, the Cybersecurity and Internet Freedom Act currently being considered in the Senate (as an answer to the problematic Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) passed by there House in April) has very little to say about building security in.
Though cyber law has always lagged technical reality by several years, ignoring the notion of building security in is a fundamental flaw.
