Broad-based coalition supports cotton amendment strengthening senate cybersecurity bill

A broad-based coalition of 10 associations led by the National Retail Federation sent a letter to Senate leadership in support of an amendment by Senator Tom Cotton to S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015, that would give liability protection to businesses that share cyber threats with the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the U.S. Secret Service rather than just the Department of Homeland Security.

“NRF is leading the fight against data theft because the retailer-consumer relationship depends on trust, and cyberattacks erode that trust,” said Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French. “Hackers target a wide variety of businesses, but data thefts committed against retailers draw attention because retail stores are names consumers know and places where they shop every day.
