WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Members of the Aspen Institute Homeland Security Group (AIHSG) released a statement today urging the Senate to pass the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA). This legislation would incentivize private sector entities to share critical cyber information with relevant government agencies in real time. It is now pending on the Senate floor.
In the statement, members of the AIHSG recognize that the severity of cyber threats to US national security requires the Senate action to help protect US citizens and entities from future cyber attacks.
