On December 3, the Merchant and Financial Associations Cybersecurity Partnership (“Partnership”) submitted a letter to Congress requesting its consideration of adopting cybersecurity information sharing legislation. Created in February in response to high profile security breaches, the Partnership aims to protect retailers and financial institutions against cyber attacks. In its letter, the Partnership suggests that Congress adopt legislation that would “increase the current level of voluntary cybersecurity information sharing, while recognizing and responding to key privacy concerns.”
