New cybersecurity legislation predictably threatens privacy

Open Technology Institute:

“The Protecting Cyber Networks Act would explicitly undermine every rule that is currently in place to protect Americans’ Internet privacy, and replaces them with dangerously weak protections. It would massively increase companies’ monitoring of our online communications and activities, and give them a nearly blank check to share that information with the government. Once all of that information is in the NSA and FBI’s hands, it could be used in investigations that have absolutely nothing to do with cybersecurity.”
