Whether through federal legislation or “free” trade agreements, our right to internet freedom and privacy is constantly under attack.
“This time, CISA [Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014] is even worse than CISPA [Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2013]. The bill would give the NSA [National Security Agency] even more authority to access our data and force companies to fork over private data without a search warrant.”
“CISA is an even more toxic bill than the original CISPA bill. CISA stays in line with the original objective of the CISPA bill to strengthen and legitimize the NSA’s surveillance programs. But this time the bill would allow for and encourage sweeping datamining taps on Internet users for the undefined purpose of domestic ‘cybersecurity’. The NSA would be able to share this data with police and other law enforcement agencies for domestic "cybersecurity" purposes - meaning these powers will be used against innocent citizens.”
Recently passed in the House, CISA is now headed to the Senate.
