House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) wants to re-introduce cybersecurity legislation as soon as this week that originally passed through the House last spring, he told CBS News Sunday.

Rogers told “Face the Nation” he and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) Rogers plan to re-introduce the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, which would allow the government to share classified cyber information with companies.

Senior intelligence leaders believe the U.S. can stop 90 percent of cyber problems through information sharing, Rogers said in the interview.

U.S. cyber vulnerabilities put social security numbers, money from banks and intellectual property at risk, he said.

Cyber adversaries are also looking at attacking U.S. financial networks, Rogers added.
