Sen. Thomas Carper (D-DE) has proposed a new cybersecurity bill that pushes for threat intelligence sharing between the private sector and government by easing regulatory obstacles, National Journal reported Wednesday.

Dustin Volz writes the legislation incorporates recommendations from the White House and data privacy proponents.

Carper intends for the bill to counter cyber threats and determine security risks, according to the report.

The bill would authorize companies to share threat indicators with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center and other federal agencies, the report says.

National Journal reports the legislation also seeks to exempt the sharing of data from legal consequences.

Carper’s office explains that the bill requires transparency reports that detail how the legislation is implemented for accountability, Volz reports.

Congress will be able to review the legislation’s progress and the protection of civil liberties for five years under the proposed measure, according to the report.
