What is Cispa?
Excerpt taken from Wired.com: “The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (Cispa) is a proposed piece of US legislation (you can read the lastest draft here) that first came onto the scene in November 2011. The bill aims to give the US government further powers to ensure the security of networks against attacks and intellectual property. It seeks to do this by establishing procedures that allow the intelligence community including the US National Security Agency to share cyber threat intelligence with private-sector web entities and vice versa.”

To Members of Congress:
I oppose any cybersecurity legislation that allows companies to share sensitive and private information with military agencies, including the National Security Agency. It is a long-standing American value that our military does not operate on US soil against American citizens.
I strongly urge you to uphold this very important limitation and not allow the NSA unfettered access to Americans’ internet activity.
