DHS to Clarify Liability Protections for Companies Sharing Cyber-threat Indicators

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intends to issue revised guidance that will clarify liability protections for companies sharing cyber-threat indicators among themselves, and will reissue guidance on information sharing with non-federal entities under the Cybersecurity Act of 2015. DHS intends to revise the initial guidance issued in February to reflect the industry feedback it has received. On June 15, DHS also intends to issue final versions of the interim guidance on operational procedures for government receipt of cyber-threat information and on privacy and civil liberties requirements under the Act.
