CISPA sister emerges in the US

Electronic Frontier Foundation policy analyst Mark Jaycox said government guidance, like the cyber security executive order issued in February has proven to support information-sharing about cyber threats between the public and private sector.

Anything reminiscent to CISPA's privacy-impacting provisions, however, could encourage government agencies to tread in dangerous terrain, he said.

“The devil is the details, so we will have to wait to see the language of the bill,” Jaycox said, later adding,  “I would hope that Senator Feinstein realises that any bill that tries to provide legal immunity or information-sharing [of PII] won't pass the Senate."
