Tomorrow the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a hearing on the relationship between the Freedom  of Information Act, and the protection of critical infrastructure.  One aspect of the hearing will be the proposal (contained in the Lieberman-Collins bill and in the McCain bill) to exempt any cybersecurity threat and vulnerability information voluntarily provided by the private sector to the Federal government from the disclosure requirements of the FOIA.  I will be testifying in favor of the proposal tomorrow and provide here a link to my testimony.  I would be remiss if I did not note that my testimony is substantially derived from a longer paper I did for the Koret-Taube Taskforce on National Security and Law at the Hoover Institution.
