A bill is about to be introduced in the Senate that will enhance cybersecurity information sharing between the government and private sector, according to FedScoop.
The bill would be the equivalent to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act that was passed in April, and would allow for real-time information sharing of cyber threat information between the government and private sector, FedScoop reported.
The bill would create an information-sharing portal within the Homeland Security Department to facilitate the sharing of information, and would provide liability coverage for private owners and operators of critical infrastructure, FedScoop reported.
