The departments of Homeland Security and Justice say that recent legislation lets businesses share cyber threat information with industry interests as well as government. The agencies released a document Tuesday night clarifying the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA). ADVERTISEMENTThe measure, which passed in the 2015 omnibus, was designed to allow companies to share threat information with the federal government and other industry members while limiting potential civil liabilities for doing so. But since its passage, business have questioned whether the wording of the bill limited the information-sharing to just government.
