Venable partner Jamie Barnett was quoted in a May 18, 2015 Bloomberg BNA article on the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) quest for a cybersecurity "paradigm" and its possible use by other agencies. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's vision for a "paradigm" emphasizes a reliance on the market first and preserving "other options" if needed.

"This gives industry the opportunity to step up voluntarily, instead of being forced by default to comply with heavy-handed regulations," said Barnett.
