Ron Paul, President Obama in Opposition of Cybersecurity BillSubmitted by DeMolay on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 15:38
The President is threatening to veto the bill if it makes it pass the House and Senate
H.R. 3523 -- or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), as it's better known -- is a pretty interesting piece of legislation.
Proponents of the bill -- an amendment to the National Security Act of 1947 [PDF] -- claim the bill is vital as it allows private entities to share information on cybersecurity threats with the U.S. government. This could help protect the private sector against attacks from both malicious rogues and hostile nation states like China.
