How to Prevent the Attack on Your Privacy
A major national security law that was passed by Congress last year is now being implemented.
According to The American Conservatives, the new bill gives the government unprecedented powers to search through your emails, your Facebook posts, and any other information stored on your phone, tablet, and other electronic devices, and will also force your company to share any data collected with the government with the same consent requirements for all private communications.
The bill is known as the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), and it is the product of months of intense lobbying by technology companies and the government.
In June, President Obama signed CISPA into law, which makes it a federal crime for Americans to circumvent encryption in their email, Facebook, or other electronic communication.
Under the new law, companies and tech companies will have to disclose to the government all information they have about your communications that was not explicitly collected under the law.
It is a major blow to the civil liberties of Americans, as well as to the privacy of the American people, according to TheAmericanConservatives.org, a conservative advocacy group that opposes the bill.
The AmericanConservatives’ warning comes after a number of tech companies, including Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple, and others, have said they will not comply with the new legislation unless they are forced to comply with new requirements.
The new law requires the companies to disclose their customer data to the FBI, as required under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.
However, according the AmericanConsories website, it is “not clear whether the new federal law would apply to companies that do not comply, including social media companies, which have already said they are not in the business of selling targeted advertising.
In addition, there are significant concerns that the law would also allow the government to compel the disclosure of your emails to law enforcement.”
The law would require that companies with more than 500 employees to hand over their email addresses to the Justice Department, and the law allows the government a five-year deadline to begin using that information to target you, including a request for an email address.
The legislation would also give the government the power to compel companies to make their products more secure, including by requiring them to implement new technology to encrypt and scramble their communications.
This legislation will have the effect of making our online lives, and our communication, increasingly dangerous and invasive.
It will not help secure our networks and our infrastructure and will be counterproductive to fighting cybercrime.
It would also put an undue burden on companies to comply and would result in the loss of valuable business to our country.
The House of Representatives voted last week to pass the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which was passed out of committee last month by a vote of 233-191.
The Cybersecurity Intelligence Sharing Act is a significant step forward, TheAmericanConservative.org said, but it has one major problem: It will require that tech companies comply with government demands, even though they are unlikely to comply.
The cybersecurity industry is already feeling the pressure of the law’s mandatory disclosures requirements.
Microsoft has already said that it is going to drop encryption in its products in response to the bill, and it recently told its employees that they would be unable to access their emails until they gave up their passwords.
“This is a great first step toward securing our systems, but the law is still far from being effective,” the AmericanConservative.
Org said in a statement.
“As we have seen in the last several years, the FBI can go after the most innocent, the most vulnerable, and most law-abiding Americans with the most minimal legal safeguards.”
The AmericanConservative website also said that CISPA would not only violate the privacy rights of millions of Americans but will also put companies at risk of liability.
“The law could have unintended consequences and create a legal cloud over companies and individuals, and that is not good for our country or the world,” the website said.
“We urge Congress to take a stand against this dangerous law.”
