Venable partner Jamie Barnett was quoted in a March 19, 2015 Bloomberg BNA article on a report urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to avoid a checklist in cybersecurity oversight. The report concludes that a checklist is not an adequate defense and recommends voluntary mechanisms such as confidential meetings between the FCC and telecom providers to develop best risk management practices.

"If Internet service providers and communications companies want to keep this voluntary or 'light touch,' those meetings with the FCC will have to show real improvements," said Barnett.
