With members of the House of Representatives already back home enjoying their August recess, the Senate has a few more days left in session in Washington. It is widely expected to push forward the Cyber-Information Sharing Act (CISA -- S.754) as quickly as possible but with members of both parties lining up with amendments to the bill, time is of the essence.
CISA would make it easier for companies to share information about cyber threats with the government but is facing criticism for its treatment of personal information and how the government would be allowed to use that information.
The only committee hearing of note for the week ahead examine disaster relief for entrepreneurs and small businesses.
