SLA Expresses Concern over CISPA
On March 11, 2013, several organizations, including SLA, wrote a letter to the U.S. Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence expressing concerns with Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). As drafted, CISPA constitutes a wholesale attack on public access to information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
In the interest of encouraging private companies to share cybersecurity threat information, the bill unwisely and unnecessarily cuts off all public access to cyber threat information before the public and Congress have the chance to understand the types of information that are withheld under the bill.
