CISPA

(Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) A controversial bill (H.R. 3523) passed by the U.S. Congress in April 2013 that deals with sharing cybersecurity information between the U.S. government and private companies in order to prevent future attacks. Most telecom and computer companies and the national Chamber of Commerce were in favor of CISPA, while organizations such as the ACLU and EFF were against it due to privacy concerns. See EFF.

CISA
Passed in late 2015, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) succeeded where CISPA failed. Touted as the second Patriot Act, opponents claim CISA has detrimental surveillance provisions.
