Countdown to the CISA vote

ciSA

 

CISA is the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which is one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation in the Internet’s history. It sets the precedent for what the Internet is used for into the future. It would effectively give the government full access to all of our information to use as they wish, end privacy policies, and make all of us more vulnerable to cyber attacks.

CISA would allow spy agencies like the NSA to collect even more of your personal data and then share it with dozens of other government agencies, all the way down to local police, authorizing them to use it for an absurdly wide range of purposes that have nothing to do with “cybersecurity,” including investigating “fake” id’s.

Worse, it will literally do nothing to stop the types of high profile cyber attacks that Congress is using to justify it. So we get less privacy AND less security, while giant companies like Target, Experian, and Sony will get legal immunity that lets them on the hook when they fail to protect our data.

Despite the fact that nearly every major tech company and security expert has come out against it, Congress is still rushing toward a vote on CISA, and the numbers are not looking good. The House Intelligence chief is claiming that CISA will pass “overwhelmingly,” despite the massive public outcry. 

Congress is hoping that they can sneak this bill through without a fight. We need to prove them wrong.

TELL YOUR LAWMAKERS TO VOTE NO ON CISA RIGHT NOW!

Cybersecurity is a real concern, and nobody wants to see their personal information stolen by online predators, but CISA isn’t a real solution to foreign hackers and places our personal information at risk. Watch this video by FreedomWorks to learn more.
