Obama’s administration seems determined to announce new cybersecurity measures amid warnings from the opposition about too broad legal immunity. The privacy campaigners claim that the bill in question can put personal data at risk, pointing to the attacks like the Sony Pictures hack as an example.
Right after the Pentagon’s own Twitter account has been compromised and Bara?k Obama pushed a 30-day window for consumer security breaches, his administration decided to propose a bill that would toughen the response of the private sector. The essence of the bill is that the companies should share data with government agencies (including the well-known National Security Agency) – immediately and under broad protection.
The government claims that the new law can grant companies legal immunity for sharing data about attacks and allow to coordinate the counter-measures. However, the government didn’t support suggestions that companies could individually retaliate against hackers, because this could escalate cyber warfare.
In response, privacy groups argued that the existing rules allow companies to coordinate sufficiently, and challenged a potential provision that could allow the government to share data with the NSA, FBI and secret service. On the other hand, the government denies that its proposed information-sharing system can ever put privacy at risk, because the companies are only required to disclose data about the method of attack rather than the content affected.
Finally, the proposed law offers additional powers for law enforcement agencies to target hackers. The suggested legislation includes provisions that allow to prosecute the sale of “botnets” (software for coordinating the hacking attacks).

|More power to the NSA and less privacy to everyone else seems to be the credo of the intelligence services in corporate owned America,what boils my pee is that all other countries are adopting the same fascist lead and spying on their own chipping away at freedoms and rights that we have all come to expect from our ISP`s and governments who in turn pass all our data back to the NSA betraying the very people they are supposed to work for and who elected them to office,truly a messed up situation ,no wonder Bill Binney Bailed out on the NSA.|
|At least it wasn't done by a Republican or else the public and the media might actually give a crap.||
