Senate Approves Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act

The U.S. Senate passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), bringing it one step closer to becoming law. The House of Representatives is currently considering it. “Critics claim that the law will be a free pass to mass surveillance, and internet users are scrambling to find alternative ways to protect their privacy,” the press release notes.

CISA is intended to protect companies from data breaches by allowing them to share cybersecurity and customer information with the Department of Homeland Security without a warrant. Government agencies will analyze the data and share it with companies to help prevent security breaches.

For more information, read the press release.
