Re: Congress Clears Path for Information Sharing But Will It Help?
I haven't read the bill, but I think the bigger concern is that it will be used as a means of indemnifying companies who decide to hand over personnel and customer records to the FBI, ostensibly for use in cybersecurity investigations, but actually in criminal ones (so it doesn't have to go through the hassle of getting search warrants).

Congress Clears Path for Information Sharing But Will It Help?
I happen to think this will certainly help and give credence to the organizations that have already been sharing information or understand the value of sharing, want to share, but had been held back for fear of potential liabilities. There are obviously the privacy hawks and those who still believe in keeping their stuff under wraps as a form of protection through obscurity that they can live with. Information sharing organizations (the ISACs) will become more mature, profitable business ventures rather than the largely volunteer service organizations that they are today.

This new legal framework will enable making information sharing a mainstream and acceptable thing over time.
