House Passes Controversial Cyber Security Bill for Second Time

April 22, 2013

Opponents are not giving up. Calling the House vote "shameful," the  Electronic Frontier Foundation immediately issued a statement and vowed to continue to fight for changes in the bill to balance the need for cyber security with the privacy rights of consumers. 

"Cispa is a poorly drafted bill that would provide a gaping exception to bedrock privacy law," EFF senior staff attorney Kurt Opsahl said in a statement. "While we agree that our nation needs to address pressing Internet security issues, this bill sacrifices online privacy while failing to take common-sense steps to improve security."
