Chairman Rogers & Ranking Member Ruppersberger Praise Senate Intelligence Committee Markup of Cyber Information Sharing Bill

Joint Statement by HPSCI Chairman Mike Rogers and Ranking Member C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger

“We applaud the Senate Intelligence Committee’s passage of their cybersecurity bill. We urge the full Senate to move quickly to pass this important legislation. This bill, like the House version, allows American companies to better protect their networks from the daily onslaught of damaging cyber attacks. These attacks cost our country billions of dollars through the loss of jobs and intellectual property. We are confident that the House and the Senate will quickly come together to address this urgent threat and craft a final bill that secures our networks and protects privacy and civil liberties.”
