Earlier today, the Senate passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) by a vote of 74-21. Early reports are that most of the more significant privacy-related amendments were rejected, as was the proposal to eliminate DHS's status as the "hub" for information sharing. We'll have more analysis later. The bill differs from the House-passed version and we can look forward to a conference of the two competing versions in the coming months.
