Cybersecurity bills would add secrecy to public records laws

A proposed law to encourage companies to share cyberthreat information with the U.S. government includes measures that could significantly limit what details the public can review about the program.

The legislation would keep secret under public records laws any information a company hands over to the Obama administration. The new cybersecurity agreement would allow the firms themselves to decide the specifics that shouldn’t be disclosed. That secrecy may extend even to learning whether a company is participating.
