BRT Welcomes Passage of Information Sharing Legislation

December 18, 2015

Washington – Business Roundtable today applauded Congress for passing critical cybersecurity information sharing legislation.

“We commend Congress for passing critical cybersecurity information sharing legislation that will enable the exchange of cybersecurity information while preserving the protection of privacy and civil liberties. We are also pleased that the White House supports this important legislation and President Obama intends to sign it into law,” said Maggie Wilderotter, Executive Chairman of Frontier Communications Corporation and Chair of the Business Roundtable Technology, Internet and Innovation Committee. “This legislation will provide a voluntary and non-regulatory foundation for advancing public and private sector cybersecurity capabilities, especially those around protection and detection, and enable both sectors to manage growing cybersecurity risks to our national security and, equally as important, the U.S. economy.”

Business Roundtable released an economic growth agenda earlier this year that includes tax reform, expanded trade opportunities, immigration reform, fiscal stability and infrastructure investment.
