Washington, District Of Columbia

As the Senate prepared to begin consideration of S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), CUNA joined other financial services trade groups in a letter of support for the legislation.  The joint letter also encouraged the Senate to add meaningful data security legislation to the cyber security bill.  S. 754 stalled when it took longer than expected for the Senate to agree on which amendments would be considered.  One of the amendments drew strong opposition from us:  Senator Warren's amendment to authorize NCUA to supervise third party vendors.  CUNA objected to this amendment's consideration and leadership did not make it part of the amendments made in order.
