House Passes Second Cyber Bill to Promote Info Sharing
Friday, April 24, 2015 6:35 AM

The U.S. House passed the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 1731) Thursday by a 355-63 vote.

This is the second cybersecurity-related piece of legislation passed by the House this week; the Protecting Cyber Networks Act (H.R. 1560) was passed Wednesday.

H.R. 1560 would allow enhanced sharing of information about cybersecurity threats, while H.R. 1731 amends 2002's Homeland Security Act to enhance multi-directional sharing of cybersecurity risk information.

CUNA supports both pieces of legislation. The bills are expected to be combined, and the House will begin discussions with the Senate on a final legislative package.

The Senate is expected to act on cyberthreat information-sharing legislation in the coming weeks.
