US Senate Approves Cybersecurity Information Sharing Bill
The U.S. Senate has approved a bill despite some detractors are saying that it is too vague that could put information at risk at FBI's and NSA's hands. The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act will be a step ahead to safeguard information from the hands of cyberterrorists.
The controversial Cybersecurity Bill has been approved by the U.S. Senate despite the negative criticisms it had received. Argued by the minority, the bill might have been too vague about information sharing that could risk internet user's personal and other delicate information in the hands of the National Security Agency or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Alterations to the said bill must be settled in a senate conference before being sent to the White House as President Barack Obama has taken an interest on the bill, indicating that he will approve it.
North Carolina Republican Senator Richard Burr is the bill sponsor and is also the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman. He divulged that the Cybersecurity Act will help safeguard personal privacy. It will also be a foot forward on stopping hacking incidents, not after hack attacks.
In addition, Senator Burr deep-rooted that the bill creates an information sharing atmosphere that permits its participants to have a better knowledge about cyberspace safety and security and how hacked information can be used against them.
The CISA has been supported by the Democrats. Virginia Senator Mark Warner states that it is critical to encourage coordination and share information between the government and companies in order to protect them and identify the threats against them.
As there would be pros, there would be cons. Minnesota Senator Alan Stuart Franken believes that the bill still needs some improvements as major concerns voiced by privacy advocates, tech companies and security experts have not been fixed and left unanswered. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is also concerned about this issue. Amendments have been considered and approved by way of vote 74 against 21.
