The House approved the Protecting Cyber Networks Act on Wed in a 307-116 vote. The bill seeks to enable private companies to share cyber threat indicators with each other and, on a voluntary basis, with the federal govt but not through the NSA or the Defense Dept. Defense contractors would also be allowed to keep sharing cyber threat info with Defense. The bill will also require companies to remove personal info before sharing with the govt. NCTA pres/CEO Michael Powell praised the move while urging the House to pass 2 complementary cybersecurity bills (H.R. 1560 and H.R. 1731) that “remove barriers to real-time sharing of cyber threat indicators to improve our cyber defenses.” There was plenty of cybersecurity talk this week in light of the annual RSA Conference, which focuses on cybersecurity.
