Comment: CISA

(See in situ)


CISA

Thanks for mentioning CISA. I had forgotten about it. I guess I thought it was dead...
But I see Dianne Feinstein has revived it:

"The bill, introduced by senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) as a way to facilitate the sharing of information between the government and private firms, would grant corporations that voluntarily share information about the users of their services with law enforcement officials broad immunity for doing so."

Of note:

"The CISA letter charges that the bill gives government officials far greater freedom to collect data on citizens, while also reducing the public’s ability to see what those officials are doing by exempting all information the government would collect from companies under the legislation from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) disclosure rules."
