BSA | The Software Alliance Applauds Senate for Taking Up Information Sharing Legislation
WASHINGTON — August 3, 2015 — BSA | The Software Alliance supports the Senate leadership’s decision to consider the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA) before the August recess.
“The Senate was wise to make CISA a priority before recess. Voluntary information sharing is one of the most effective ways to defend against the countless cyber threats and intrusions that computer systems face on a daily basis,” said Victoria Espinel, President and CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance.
“It is important to advance legislation that removes the legal barriers that discourage information sharing between the public and privates sectors while protecting consumer privacy, and that’s a critical balance to reach,” Espinel added. “We look forward to working with Senators to advance legislation that accomplishes these goals,” she said.BSA previously sent a letter to Senate leadership urging them to take action on the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act.
