* ALERT!: Secure IT Act introduced in the Senate * Backed by McCain!Submitted by silentboom on Tue, 07/10/2012 - 08:43
The Criminal government is at it again under the guise of making us safer. Another attempt to wrap it's slimy godless tentacles around our throats. Everyone should immediately recognize the threat to our freedoms and one of the only semi-free areas of our economy and free speech rights, the only area of the economy where businesses are currently investing! God help us all if we allow this! Their goal is control and monetary gain, plain and simple. We have to push back and push back HARD!
"If passed, the cybersecurity law will encourage businesses and government agencies to share information about security threats and incidents with each other. Also, government contractors would be required to notify the agencies they work with about significant IT security threats."
- They will determine what is a "threat"!
"Many of the Secure IT Act’s proposals have already been approved on the other side of Congress — the bill is similar to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, which was passed by the House of Representatives in April."
