Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"So this Senator must say we have made at least 15 different privacy amendments to meet individual Senators’ needs. There is a managers’ package, a substitute amendment, if you will, that takes out any use of this information from being used for any other purpose—violent crime—other than cyber security because a number of Senators weighed in, and they felt it could be used to be monitored as a surveillance bill."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 4, 2015
Richard Burr, R-NC
"It is an information-sharing bill. It is not a surveillance bill. I say to those who have characterized it that way that we have done everything we can to clarify with the managers’ amendment that there is no surveillance. The only thing we are after is minimizing the loss of data that exists."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"So cyber security is a serious problem. Information sharing can play a constructive role, but information sharing without robust privacy safeguards is really not a cyber security bill. It is going to be seen by millions of Americans as a surveillance bill, and that is why it is so important that there be strong privacy guidelines."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 3, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Cyber security is a very real problem in America. My constituents have been hacked. In fact, the Chinese were indicted for hacking my constituents. Information sharing can play a valuable role. Yet information sharing without vigorous and robust privacy safeguards will be seen by the American people as a surveillance bill. That is a fact."
