White House: CISPA Not Doing Enough for Privacy
CYBERSECURITY—U.S.April 12, 2013
The Obama administration has issued a statement indicating it is unlikely to support the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) in the form passed this week by the House Intelligence Committee, Los Angeles Times reports. “While stopping short of an outright veto threat that many privacy activists may have wanted, the statement made clear that the administration does not believe the bill in its current form does enough to safeguard personal information,” the report states. The committee voted 18-2 in support of CISPA after removing four amendments aimed at increased privacy protections.
