CTIA Statement After the U.S. House Passed Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA)

Apr 18, 2013

WASHINGTON After the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA),  CTIA-The Wireless Association® Vice President of Government Affairs Jot Carpenter said:
  
“CTIA congratulates Chairman Rogers and Congressman Ruppersberger on passage of their legislation, and we thank those members of Congress who voted in favor of this bill. As we have said in the past, the enactment of a voluntary information-sharing framework, like the one in this bill, is the single most important thing the government can do to help the wireless industry enhance its cybersecurity posture. I hope today’s bipartisan vote sends a strong signal to the Senate that this bill is a good place to start its work. ”
