said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. “At the Stock Exchange today, we discussed their data protection and cybersecurity efforts. In Congress, I will continue to push for beefing up our nation’s cybersecurity practices and making sure that individual computer users and businesses of all sizes have the resources and knowledge to keep our country safe.”
