About BRT

Washington – Business Roundtable today commended the U.S. Senate for passing critical cybersecurity information sharing legislation—the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA).

“We applaud the Senate 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 urge an expeditious conference of CISA and the House-passed information sharing bill so that President Obama can sign a bill into law as soon as possible,” said Maggie Wilderotter, Executive Chairman of Frontier Communications Corporation and Chair of the Business Roundtable Technology, Internet and Innovation Committee. “The final legislation should 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.
