Tillis Applauds Passage Of Bipartisan Cybersecurity Legislation

Press Release:

 WASHINGTON, D.C.     Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) applauded the passage of S.754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which was sponsored by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC). The bipartisan legislation will enable the government and private sector to voluntarily share information about malicious threats and cooperate to respond to them more quickly.

"With our nation facing an increasing number of cyber threats that have the potential to damage our economy and destroy individual livelihoods, the Senate came together to pass the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which is a much-needed first step toward making cybersecurity a national priority," said Senator Tillis. "Senator Burr should be commended for tirelessly working to strike the delicate balance between improving private and public sector coordination to help prevent cyber attacks, and protecting the personal privacy of the American people in the process."
