The final battle over the Senate’s biggest cybersecurity bill in years is slated to take place Tuesday on the floor of the upper chamber.
And the fever pitch over the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) — which would offer legal liability protections to encourage companies to share data on hacking threats with the government — is reaching its apex just days ahead of a crucial vote.
Privacy-minded senators, civil rights groups and a growing number of tech companies are warning the legislation will merely shuttle more of Americans’ personal data to the government without actually bolstering cyber defenses.
But CISA proponents — including a large bipartisan coalition of lawmakers, many industry groups and the White House — insist the bill is a necessary first step if businesses and the government want to stop the deluge of cyberattacks.
These opposing forces will clash on the Senate floor during an action-packed Tuesday, as each side gets to debate their preferred amendments.
