January 28, 2015
Chairman Johnson, Ranking Member Carper, and members of the Committee: Thank you for the opportunity to testify today on behalf of the Center for Democracy and Technology. CDT is a nonpartisan, non-profit technology policy advocacy organization dedicated to protecting civil liberties and human rights on the Internet, including privacy, free speech, and access to information. I direct the Freedom, Security and Technology Project at CDT. It works to develop and promote policies that safeguard individuals from over broad government surveillance while preserving the government's ability to protect national security against evolving threats. We applaud the Committee for holding the first hearing of the 114th Congress on cybersecurity, an important issue that the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee has a key role in addressing. Today I will explain how Congress can embrace cybersecurity information sharing policies with appropriate authorities and safeguards that enhance both privacy and security. I will first describe the cybersecurity threat and explain the role that information sharing can play in countering that threat. I will then identify different approaches to encouraging information sharing as well as the essential civil liberties attributes of a successful information sharing policy. I will also measure pending legislative proposals against those attributes.
