- Excerpt from Industry Liability Protections and Standards:
Both NCPAA and the PCNA contain liability protection for non-federal entities that share information. NCPAA’s language is stronger than PCNA. The NCPAA includes language that protects non-federal entities from liability in any civil or criminal action for sharing cyber threat indicators or defensive measures, unless the entity engaged in willful misconduct. Civil liberty groups contend the bills’ definition of a defensive measure is vague and does not clearly indicate what type of action a private company may take against the source of a cyber attack.
