According to a 2013 study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, cybercrime costs the United States an estimated $100 billion per year. Businesses and the government clearly have an interest in curbing those losses. On Oct. 27, the U.S. Senate passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA, S. 754). While it still must be reconciled with the House version, and then signed into law by the president, the bill seems likely to be enacted into law sometime in early 2016.
