Special US cyber security legislation support

ISACA : 30 April, 2015  (New Product)
IT security industry body ISACA has released a special report which examines the latest cybersecurity legislation on information sharing in the USA
Special US cyber security legislation support

ISACA has added a new CSX Special Report to its Cybersecurity Legislation Watch centre as part of its Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX). The report explains the details underlying two cybersecurity information sharing bills—the Protecting Cyber Networks Act (PCNA) and National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement (NCPA) Act—recently passed by the US House of Representatives.

The new seven-page CSX Special Report: US House Passes Cybersecurity Information Sharing Legislation provides insights on cyber threats as defined in the PCNA and NCPA Act. The report details cybersecurity information sharing between private entities and the federal government as well as the impact the legislation will have on businesses. These acts were passed after US President Obama’s recent declaration of cybercrime as a national emergency and his executive order authorizing new sanctions against cyber attackers.

Recently, ISACA and RSA Conference conducted a global survey, the State of Cybersecurity: Implications for 2015, of 649 cybersecurity and IT managers or practitioners. The survey shows that 77 percent of respondents experienced an increase in cyber attacks from 2013 to 2014 and 82 percent of organizations expect a cyber attack in 2015.

The NCPA Act authorises information sharing with the US Department of Homeland Security, while the PCNA provides companies the choice to share cyber threat indicators or defensive measures with a number of different government agencies.

“Cyber security is a critical, evolving issue, and ISACA works to keep professionals updated and aware of developments,” said Robert Stroud, CGEIT, CRISC, international president of ISACA and vice president of strategy and innovation at CA Technologies. “Creating and sharing special reports like this helps professionals become more cyber aware and understand progress being made that can affect them and their enterprises.”

CSX offers extensive resources to address the cybersecurity skills gap through training, performance-based credentials and applied research. In October 2015, ISACA will host the first CSX conference in Washington DC to bring together cybersecurity professionals. Recently, ISACA introduced skills-based training with performance based exams and seven new CSX certifications to help professionals build and evolve their careers in cyber.
