    In a Bloomberg BNA (subscription required) article regarding legislation passed by the House on July 29, 2014 to clarify the Department of Homeland Security's role in combatting cyberthreats facing the nation's banking system, energy pipelines, telecommunication networks and other U.S. infrastructure, Partner Norma Krayem noted, “Time is tight on the legislative calendar in the 113th Congress, but there's still time to get this bill and others enacted this year.” Earlier this month, the Senate Intelligence Committee approved legislation (S. 2588) to provide liability protection to companies that share cyberthreat data with the government. The bill has strong support from leading business groups, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. However, the outlook for the measure has been complicated by privacy concerns.
