Cybersecurity Solutions that Protect and Empower

“Sharing experiences of cyber breaches will educate business owners, employees, and families – and most important, mark a proactive step forward in combating cyber breaches.”

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 1560, the Protecting Cyber Networks Act and H.R. 1731, the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act of 2015, which address the growing threat of cyber breaches by encouraging secure, private information sharing in effort to protect the American people from future cyberattacks.

“This past year, cyber breaches grew in size and scope – there were too many attacks on private companies, infringements on the finances of American families, and violations on personal information. Americans should feel secure at home, especially when it comes to their private information. Unfortunately, businesses lack the guidelines to share cybersecurity experiences with their peers – and when information isn’t being shared, no one is able to learn from past cyberattacks. This week, House Republicans passed two solutions that give Americans the ability to not only share valuable lessons with each other, but reinforce their grip on personal privacy and civil liberties. I applaud the hard work of Chairmen David Nunes (R-CA) and Michael McCaul (R-TX) for finding a solution to the growing threat of cyber breaches. As the threats Americans face change, we must adapt accordingly. Sharing experiences of cyber breaches will educate business owners, employees, and families – and most important, mark a proactive step forward in combating cyber breaches.”
