House Panel Moves Foward Cyber Info Legislation

CyberStockThe House Intelligence Committee voted 18-2 Wednesday to approve legislation that would encourage the private sector and the government to share cybersecurity intelligence in real time.

Companies could determine which government entity they want to share information with and the bill lists the National Security Agency as one of several agencies private businesses can work with, The Hill newspaper reports.

Jennifer Martinez writes the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act also lets companies receive government intelligence on cyber threats and protects them from legal action if they share information with the government.

According to the report, types of information that could be shared under CISPA include malicious source code.

CISPA moved through the committee last year and through the full House last spring but the Senate did not take up the bill, Martinez writes.
