After the Senate's passage of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) on Tuesday, we turned to the Cyber Threat Alliance for some perspective on the bill.
The alliance includes four companies, Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, Symantec and Intel Security Group, and its goal is to share information. It broadly supports the Cybersecurity Act, with some reservations.
The big issue is, of course, privacy and how much the government can be trusted. At the same time, the industry, and those it aims to protect, face an increasingly sophisticated and nimble army of hackers.
