It's try No. 2 for cybersecurity data-sharing bill


Rep. Tom Davis


Two Virginia congressmen are reintroducing a bill to encourage businesses to share security information with the government and with other companies.

The Cyber Security Information Act of 2001 would promote disclosing data that could help safeguard the nation's critical infrastructure, Republican Tom Davis and Democrat Jim Moran said last week.

The bill is similar to one the pair introduced last year. Modeled on the Year 2000 Information and Readiness Disclosure Act, it would provide antitrust exemptions, limited exemption from the Freedom of Information Act and protection against civil suits.
