Panel on the Privacy and Civil Liberties Interim Guidelines

A crucial element in the passage of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 was the requirement that there be Privacy and Civil Liberties Guidelines on handling information that will be shared through CISA. The Departments of Justice and Homeland Security released interim guidelines in February, with final guidelines expected in June 2016. The Chief Privacy Officers of both Departments will discuss the guidelines, while Jonathan Gannon and Mary Ellen Callahan will provide private sector impressions.
