Cybersecurity Information Sharing: The Road Ahead – with Sen. Ron Wyden

BY Maggie Clark
April 13, 2015

As cybersecurity threats increase in sophistication each year, the sharing of cyber threat information between the government and private sector has become a high priority.

President Obama signed an executive order designed to facilitate information sharing, and offered a legislative proposal to jumpstart the conversation on the Hill. Congress has responded with a number of bills that are likely to see debate in coming weeks — including the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) in the Senate and the Protecting Cyber Networks Act (PCNA) in the House. But privacy advocates have expressed serious concerns about both bills.

Can an information sharing regime be robust enough to secure our networks while also respecting the privacy interests of Internet users worldwide?

On Thursday, April 23, join CCIA for a panel discussion event focused on the privacy concerns of pending legislation as well as the merits of public-private information sharing in the rapidly changing landscape of cybersecurity.
