Senate Intelligence Committee Introduces Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act


The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has introduced the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (S. 754) in the United States Senate. The 54-page bill, which was approved by the Committee on a 14-1 vote, includes a number of significant modifications from previous versions. It “creates additional incentives to increase sharing of cybersecurity threat information while protecting individual privacy and civil liberties interests and offering liability protection to the private sector.” Among other things, the bill provides liability protection for private sector companies that voluntarily share cyber threat indicators through a Department of Homeland Security portal. The bill has been placed on the Senate legislative calendar under general orders.
