“Even though international support for ACTA has started to waver, governments have not stopped trying to mess with the internet. The latest offender is the US government, now pushing a bill called CISPA.
The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) allows for the unlimited sharing of user data among private companies and the government, without safeguards for civil liberties. This bill has global implications, so we need to convince technology companies supporting CISPA, like AT&T, Facebook, Microsoft, and Verizon, that protecting us against cyber threats should not come at the expense of user privacy.
Cyber security is vital to internet usage — it allows us to safely shop online, send emails, and pay our bills. CISPA, though, is so vague that the governments and companies would be able monitor your online communications, censor information, and shut down internet access. There is a better way — one that narrowly defines the roles of companies in fighting cyber threats, limits what information can be shared, and doesn’t open the backdoor for governments to spy on us.”
