Additional legislation on liability protections, national data breach reporting and legal sanctions are needed to supplement President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity executive order to drive cyber information sharing, according to Mike Brown of RSA.

Brown, general manager of RSA’s global public sector business, wrote in an opinion piece published Monday on CSO that legislation in support of information sharing on cyber threats will further strengthen U.S. cyber efforts.

The private sector’s Cybersecurity Framework also works to help businesses understand and manage risk as well as facilitate an “operational cybersecurity posture” to address the identified risks, he said.

According to Brown, RSA has developed the Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment tool to help organizations determine their capacity to mitigate risks.
