How CISA encourages both cybersecurity information sharing and warrantless surveillance
Sharing cybersecurity data involving threats, probes, breaches, and information on attackers between companies and government agencies is a great idea. However, although shared data will strengthen the cybersecurity defenses, the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA), backed by Amazon, Facebook, and Google, among others, and the Business Software Alliance (BSA), which is backed by Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle, are both against it.
Smart companies are already doing something similar. At the RSA Security Conference three years ago (a century ago in cybersecurity time) Zion Bankcorp’s data scientists explained how the bank went from reacting to law enforcement warnings of cyberthreats to becoming proactive, frequently reporting threats to law enforcement, who subsequently relayed official warnings to other organizations.
