What Exactly Is The Bill?
At its most basic level, CISA is a bill designed to promote information sharing between the public and private sectors. The bill would set up a system for threat intelligence information sharing between the sectors (headed up by the Director of National Intelligence). The bill would provide immunity against privacy and antitrust laws preventing such sharing, and, once shared, would allow the government to use the data to prevent attacks of all sorts, including cyber, terrorist, economic and more. Nonrelevant personally identifiable information would theoretically be stripped from threat intelligence shared, but can be used if it is not removed.
