NAM Applauds Senate Passage of CISA

Cybersecurity Remains Key Priority for Manufacturers

Washington, D.C., October 27, 2015 – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President of Tax and Domestic Economic Policy Dorothy Coleman issued the following statement on Senate passage of S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) of 2015:

“Manufacturers are operating in an increasingly digital world as they are entrusted with more and more highly sensitive data and intellectual property. Our members understand how intertwined our nation’s economic security is with cybersecurity and consider this issue among our highest priorities. CISA will bring a much-needed cybersecurity framework between the government and private sector, without granting the government any new authority to monitor or censor private networks. The NAM appreciates the hard work Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) put into advancing this viable cybersecurity legislation and looks forward to continuing to work with Congress throughout the entire legislative process.”
