TIA CEO Scott Belcher issued the following statement:

“Urgent action needs to be taken to protect critical infrastructure against the increasing number of cyber threats. TIA is pleased that the Senate has decided to bring the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) to the floor and we urge the Senate to quickly pass this critical cybersecurity legislation.
