Rep. Mike Rogers: Cyber Attacks Could Worsen Without Data Sharing Legislation

mike rogersRep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) warned the U.S. could face bigger cybersecurity issues if Congress does not pass legislation to allow the government and industry to exchange threat information, FCW reported Monday.

“My fear is that a non-rational actor with nation-state capability is going to be able pull off a significant attack that has real financial consequences,” Rogers told reporters Friday.

Sean Lyngaas writes the House passed a cyber intelligence sharing bill last year but a similar measure stalled in the Senate this year.

Rogers said the legislation is needed to prevent sophisticated attacks like the data breach at Sony Pictures in November, according to FCW.

He believes a notion that the National Security Agency spies on people also hampers passage of cybsersecurity legislation.
