Washington, D.C. – IBM released this statement following enactment of the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, part of the omnibus budget package signed today by President Obama:

“Securing America’s digital networks is among the most urgent challenges we face as a nation,” said Christopher A. Padilla, Vice President, IBM Government and Regulatory Affairs. “This bill creates an environment where the best public and private sector insights can be pooled to meet that challenge head-on, and it does so while safeguarding individual privacy. We thank the President for making cybersecurity a national priority, and key committee leaders in both the House and Senate for driving this crucial legislation to passage.”
