In coordination with Crowell & Moring Antitrust partner David Laing — Evan Wolff, Liz Blumenfeld, and I have recently published an article in the BNA Antitrust & Trade Regulation Report entitled “DOJ and FTC Help Pave the Way For Greater Cyber Information Sharing in the Private Sector.” Our article focuses on the DOJ and FTC’s joint statement in April of this year, wherein the agencies articulated how private sector companies can share cybersecurity information without running afoul of U.S. antitrust laws. We also explain how this latest development fits into both the Obama Administration’s and private industry’s plans to shore up cybersecurity in the private sector.
