Cybersecurity Bill No Silver Bullet Amid Increasing Attacks


08 Sep 2015

Andrew Serwin, co-chair of the firm’s Global Privacy and Data Security Practice Group, was quoted regarding the proposed Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act legislation passed by the U.S. Senate in the article, “Cybersecurity Bill No Silver Bullet Amid Increasing Attacks,” published in Law360 on September 8, 2015.

“More and more, both sides of the aisle realize we need to do something,” Serwin said.  Serwin — one of several attorneys to note that cyberthreats come from around the globe — argued that with the increasing number of attacks seemingly perpetrated or at least sanctioned by other nation-states against the U.S., privacy advocates may be approaching the issue from the wrong angle.

“It’s a choice between — do you want foreign governments having access to data unfettered, or giving limited access to our own government,” he said.
