Cyber-Security Act Passes

Congress has passed the controversial CISA Cyber-Security Act. Read about it here. The bill has been highly criticized by civil rights groups:

“CISA is a nightmare dressed as a daydream; a surveillance bill masquerading as a cybersecurity bill,” Nathan White, a lawyer with the civil liberties group Access, told me. “CISA is a backdoor to surveillance, giving the NSA access to more personal information for its expansive databases. CISA is fundamentally flawed because of its broad immunity clauses for companies, vague definitions, and aggressive spying powers.”
