Westchester County Executive Talks About Proposed Wi-Fi Law

Westchester County (NY) Executive Andy Spano is responding to criticism to the proposed law that would require WIFI providers to install security on their networks to protect customer data.  He responds to comments he has received and attempts to clear up misunderstandings about the laws.  One of his concerns, for example, is hackers and others stealing credit card information from unsecured networks by simply parking outside an establishment with a laptop.  He cites articles from the New York Times and other publications as reports about similar incidents. 

The article appears in CNET News here.  Text of the legislation (after much digging) from the Westchester County web site is here.
