Cybersecurity Bill Could Threaten Users' Privacy

Cybersecurity Bill Could Threaten Users' Privacy

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently claimed that a controversial new cybersecurity bill could threaten privacy protections, and this claim may return the bill to the floor of the Senate.


The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) suggests to grant broad latitude to tech companies, data brokers and others to mine user data and then share it with certain authorities.

Following the recent query, the DHS responded that some provisions of the law could sweep away privacy protections. Besides, the agency’s representatives also said that the proposed legislation raised privacy and civil liberties concerns. The most questionable companies are Google, Facebook and Comcast, all having large hoards of Internet user behavior, as well as data brokers.

The discussions emerged in the private sector, where the use of personal information at scale is mostly unregulated. As for data brokers, they are anxious to avoid losing the ability to aggregate vast quantities of personal information, because the sale and licensing of consumer databases is a very lucrative practice, especially today, when online advertising booms and TV advertising becomes more sophisticated.

Besides, CISA’s mandate would cover the publicly used interfaces of the health insurers and banks, such as American Express, Aflac and Bank of America. Some industry observers point at the language in the law that would give participants immunity not just from prosecution, but also from regulatory action.

The fears are that if the bill were to pass and companies were to cooperate with the agencies, the amount of data disclosed to the federal government could easily extend to credit card histories, lists of goods purchased and even healthcare records.

analogkid6103 avatarThe only surprise here is DHS is raising the question. Since when are they worried about our privacy. It must be big enough of a problem that it would even affect them personally. Now thats scary.

Beolab1700 avatarLinux, TOR, Not using damn google. Withdraw cash from a dispenser/Bank to pay for anything. Sorted. I tried to buy a TV from a large well known retailer a few years ago... they actually refused the transaction.. why? I asked. "Because we need to check you have a license" Biggest load of BS I've ever heard. I went back next day with my paper licence in my pocket. Same thing happened so I covered my name and address with my thumb and let them look at it. This naturally confused the staff. Oh, well better call the manager. So, problem? I asked showing him a big wad of cash. Eventually he relented and said I could buy my TV and sent some lads out the back to get it. At which point I told them where to stick it and went next door to buy my TV.

More interested in making money out of your information than they are in selling you a product.
