BSA Letter to Senate Leadership on Information Sharing Legislation
WASHINGTON — July 21, 2015 — BSA | The Software Alliance sent a letter today to Senate leadership urging priority consideration of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (S. 754) prior to the August recess.
“We believe it is now more important than ever to enact legislation to break down the legal barriers that currently discourage cyber threat information sharing between and among the public and private sectors,” said Victoria Espinel, President and CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance. “Increased awareness will enhance the ability of businesses, consumers, and critical infrastructure to better defend themselves against attacks and intrusions. We are confident that all of these goals can be accomplished without comprising the privacy of an individual’s information.”
