House to Vote on ABA-Backed Cybersecurity Bills This Week

The full House is expected to vote this week on a pair of ABA-supported bills designed to enhance cyber threat information sharing. The House will vote tomorrow on the Protecting Cyber Networks Act (H.R. 1560), passed unanimously by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, and Thursday on the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act (H.R. 1731), which sailed unanimously through the House Homeland Security Committee.

Both bills “could help foster a more robust cyber threat information sharing ecosystem,” ABA and several other financial trade groups said in a letter to House members today. “It is critical that Congress pass threat information sharing legislation to address today’s challenges and stay ahead of tomorrow’s threats.”
