The Senate has passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing  Act 2015 (CISA). CISA aims to encourage the sharing of Internet traffic information between providers and government to improve cybersecurity. In exchange, companies will have legal immunity from Freedom of Information Act requests and regulatory action (such as under competition legislation). CISA follows the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act and the Protecting Cyber Networks Act both passed by the House of Representatives. CISA will be conferenced with these Acts and then voted on again.
