Report: 22 Amendments Lined Up for CISA After Senate Recess

cybersecuritySenators will vote on 22 proposed amendments to the cyber information-sharing bill if it comes up in September after the recess amid a packed legislative schedule, the National Journal reported Wednesday.

Kaveh Waddell writes that the future Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which will provide incentives to businesses for sharing threat information with the government, has faced delays due to disagreements on some provisions.

The submitted amendments from both parties as well as the bill’s bipartisan co-sponsors cover areas such as operations, privacy, liability and oversight, the report said.

Among them are proposed liability protections and their limits, narrower definitions of cyber threats and indicators, the voluntary nature of information sharing, qualifications for the removal of personally identifiable information from shared data and cyber crime penalties.
