BSA Applauds CISPA Passage in House

WASHINGTON, DC — April 18, 2013 —

BSA | The Software Alliance today applauded the House of Representatives for passing the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) on a strong bipartisan vote of 288-127.

“Clearing a legal path to allow sharing of threat information will significantly improve our ability to anticipate and defend against cyber-attacks,” said BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman. “I commend Chairman Rogers, Ranking Member Ruppersberger and their colleagues in the full House for passing CISPA after a constructive debate that weighed input from industry and public stakeholders. The amendment process has enhanced the bill’s privacy and civil liberties protections. We look forward to further debate and additional improvements in the Senate.”
