EEI Applauds Senate Passage of S. 754
​WASHINGTON (Tuesday, October 27, 2015) – EEI President Tom Kuhn issued the following statement today commending the U.S. Senate for passing S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA).

“The Edison Electric Institute applauds the U.S. Senate for its bipartisan passage today of S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA).

“The electric power sector already engages in significant information-sharing activities and has in place mandatory and enforceable reliability and cybersecurity standards. Still, there remains a great need for the government and industry to better share actionable security information in a timely and confidential manner.

“We believe that CISA provides a framework necessary to foster even more meaningful information sharing while maintaining the proper balance between liability and privacy protections.

“We look forward to working with both the House and the Senate to develop a final cybersecurity information sharing bill that can be signed into law by the President.”
