BSA Welcomes Additional Clarity from DOJ and FTC on Cyber Threat Information Sharing

WASHINGTON, DC — April 10, 2014

BSA | The Software Alliance today welcomed guidance from the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission clarifying that private entities can share cyber threat information among themselves without raising antitrust concerns.

“Sharing technical information about cyber threats while protecting people’s privacy is a critically important way for companies to defend themselves against attacks. In a fast-moving threat environment, it promotes nimble, adaptive commercial innovation,” said BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel. “We are pleased the Administration has confirmed there are no antitrust concerns standing in the way of this kind of legitimate cyber information sharing. We will continue to work with policymakers and industry on efforts to enhance security while protecting privacy.”
