Saxby Chambliss: New Cyber Sharing Bill Could Come Soon

us senateSen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) has said he could introduce a cybersecurity bill soon that will mandate companies and the government to share cyber attack data, The Hill reported Tuesday.

Brendan Sasso writes Chambliss and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have been working with Reps. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.), authors of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, for the Senate’s version of CISPA.

The legislators want to create a bill that lifts legal restrictions that prohibit the government and companies from exchanging information about cyber attacks with one another, according to the report.

Sasso writes the legislation would establish a government portal within the Department of Homeland Security that would work to manage the private sector information, which Chambliss says the National Security Agency should have access to.
