The House has passed a cybersecurity bill that will offer litigation protections for companies that cooperate and share attack information.

If a company shares information with the government, it would receive liability protection only if its data undergoes two rounds of washing out personal information – once by the company before it gives the data to the government and another round by the government agency that receives the data, which many experts believe is critical in getting companies to comply.

Anyone running email campaigns or patient support programs should keep an eye on this bill to ensure that internal processes remain compliant as the bill becomes law.
