FSR lauded House lawmakers today after the passage this week of two cybersecurity threat information sharing bills, H.R. 1560 and H.R. 1731, that will allow financial institutions and the private sector to share incoming threat information with the government and other institutions in a timely manner.
FSR together with 15 financial trade associations are urging Department of Labor (DoL) regulators to provide more time for the financial services industry and thepublic to submit comments on the new fiduciary standards proposal, which is more than 1,000 pages in length, and could significantly impact choice and access to advice for millions of consumers.
FSR penned an op/ed in Morning Consult highlighting the important work Congress needs to do to pass cyber threat info sharing, as well as problems that sunset amendments could pose to the strength of the bill.
FSR issued a statement today expressing concern about a proposed sunset amendment to two pieces of House cybersecurity information sharing legislation, a change that could shake the business community’s confidence in the information sharing programs.
