BSA Urges Senate to Forge Cybersecurity Consensus This Year

Unsuccessful cloture vote disappointing, but there is still time for a deal


Washington, DC — August 2, 2012 —

The Business Software Alliance expressed disappointment that the US Senate failed to reach an agreement on cybersecurity legislation today, but encouraged Congress not to give up on passing a bill this year.

“It is disappointing that Senators aren’t yet able to reach an agreement on cybersecurity legislation, but there is still time for a deal to come together in this session of Congress,” said BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman. “We urge Senators from both parties to continue pressing forward, because this issue is far too important to put aside.”
