Two Bills recently passed the United States House of Representative and moved to vote in the Senate: H.R. 1560, the Protecting Cyber Networks Bill and H.R. 1731, the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Bill, are both related to cybersecurity, including the ability to share information related to threats and limitations on liability related to such sharing.

The conjecture is that the passage of these Bills will be an economic accelerator for the insurance industry if passed into law, as increased data sharing should allow insurers to offer more comprehensive and cheaper cyber-specific coverage to companies.
