Washington, D.C. (April 24, 2012) – ITI lauds the continued efforts of Chairman Rogers and Ranking Member Ruppersberger to work with the Center for Democracy and Technology and other privacy groups to enhance privacy protections in H.R. 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.  CDT noted tonight that they “will not oppose the process moving forward in the House” and that “good progress has been made.”  ITI appreciates CDT’s continuing efforts to work with House members on amendments to address their remaining concerns about the flow of data to the NSA and the use of information for non-cybersecurity purposes.
 

Dean Garfield, President and CEO of ITI, said, “What we all want to achieve is a cybersecurity structure that protects Americans and America. The constructive dialogue between bill sponsors and privacy groups enhances our ability to craft a modern cybersecurity defense while balancing privacy concerns.”
