Feinstein Introduces Information-Sharing Bill Ahead Of Senate Cybersecurity Debate

Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., introduced legislation on Monday designed to help businesses and government communicate about cyberthreats.

A comprehensive Senate cybersecurity bill has been in the works for months and is expected to be introduced before a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Thursday. Feinstein say she plans to incorporate her proposals into that broader bill.

Feinstein's proposal would require the government to designate an agency as a "cybersecurity exchange" to coordinate information sharing; allow the government to share classified cybersecurity information with certain private-sector organizations; and provide liability protection for companies that share information.

"Alongside terrorism, cybersecurity is perhaps the number one threat facing our nation today, but many obstacles exist that prevent the cooperation and coordination needed to deter this growing threat," Feinstein said in a statement.
