  • The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act being debated

    There were sharp words on the floor of the US Senate on Wednesday as lawmakers debated the controversial Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) and its amendments.

    The bill, proposed by Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), would allow internet giants and other companies to share people's personal information with the US government so it can be analyzed for signs of lawbreaking – be it computer related or not.

    The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) is being debated by the U.S. Senate, but the very companies it purports to protect don't want it.

    Organizations such as Wikimedia, Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter and Reddit are deeply critical—saying it's over-broad, under-protecting, and even unnecessary.

    What happens when you let people like Feinstein & co write legislation.

      I'd like to make them work for it at least.

        For that scenario, the US government has to at least attempt to protect themselves from China's hacks.
