CISPA is back.

Privacy is Non-negotiable: Tell congress to oppose CISPA 2.0

CISPA is back. 
 
Last year, our collective efforts helped put a stop to one of the gravest threats to online privacy and internet freedom we have ever seen — The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.
 
The bill grants companies unprecedented power to obtain users’ personal information (such as from private communications) and to disclose that data to the government without a warrant — including sending data to the National Security Agency. 
 
This week, CISPA was reintroduced in the House of Representatives. 
 
And the new bill has the very same dangerous problems as last year’s version. CISPA 2.0 would grant immunity to private companies who share your data with other companies, private agencies, and the government. 
 
And CISPA permits the use of your personal data for reasons completely unrelated to cybersecurity. 
 
Now, as before, we cannot sacrifice our hard-won liberties and privacy rights in the pursuit of a misguided and overbroad conception of “security.”

  1. Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a
    superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything
    done.
