CISPA at-a-glance

By SB Anderson

From PC World, here is a helpful Reader’s Digesty look at the Cyber Information and Security Protection Act that passed the U.S. House last week and that has some privacy experts a bit steamed. 

The White House in a statement is on the record saying, “Legislation should address core critical infrastructure vulnerabilities without sacrificing the fundamental values of privacy and civil liberties for our citizens,” and has threatened a veto of CISPA-like bill if it’s the same as currently written.  

Next up: The Senate, which has its own versions of cybersecurity bills.
