DHS warns about privacy implications of cybersecurity bill

The bill under consideration of the Senate has been criticized by privacy groups

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned about the privacy implications of a cybersecurity bill that is intended to encourage businesses to share information about cyberthreats with the government.

The DHS has also warned that the information-sharing system proposed by the new bill could slow down responses in the face of a cyberthreat if companies are allowed to share information directly with various government agencies, instead of routing it through the department.
