On Tuesday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson urged the Senate to bring up CISA legislation in October, arguing that public/private information sharing is necessary to improve our nations cyber defenses.

While speaking at the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco, Johnson said, “the greatest thing we need right now is help from the other branch of government to pass cyber legislation. The House has already passed comprehensive cybersecurity legislation that greatly enhances my authorities, that greatly enhances information with the private sector; in my view that is the key.”

In August, the Senate punted CISA to September, but a busy legislative calendar has once again pushed the bill back until at least October.
