In response to the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Mike Rogers (R-MI-8) and Ranking Member Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD-2) releasing the Cybersecurity Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), I said:
“Recent attacks on The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Federal Reserve highlight the pressing need to enhance America’s ability to address cyberthreats. Our members are committed to helping, but they need the government to be a willing partner to share intelligence and develop solutions to protect our consumers and our networks.
“CTIA welcomes the introduction of the Rogers-Ruppersberger bill because Congress can help facilitate this collaboration by enacting a sensible framework to enable information sharing and provide appropriate liability protections. This bipartisan bill does that and CTIA urges the Congress to act quickly to make it law.”
