The US Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act: Opportunities and Challenges for Businesses

American businesses and the federal government long have recognized the important benefits of sharing cyber threat information – and the need for Congress to remove legal impediments to such sharing. With passage of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act in December 2015, Congress now has acted, bringing to a close the multi-year legislative debate over the appropriate mechanisms and legal protections for cybersecurity information sharing. As the federal government develops the information-sharing capabilities required by the Act, the private sector likewise can prepare to take advantage of the opportunities the new statute presents and to navigate the associated challenges.

Please join partners Rajesh De and Howard Waltzman and senior associate Stephen Lilley as they discuss opportunities for businesses to strengthen their cybersecurity through the enhanced sharing of cyber threat information and the deployment of associated defensive measures. In addition to detailing the key provisions of the Act and discussing the implementation challenges in both the federal government and the private sector, key topics of the teleconference will include:

  • Liability protections and antitrust exemption provided by the Act;
  • Obligations to remove personally identifiable information before sharing information with the federal government; and
  • Authorizations for network monitoring and deployment of defensive measures.
