Coalition Letter: Support Amash's Bill to Repeal the Flawed "Cybersecurity" Act of 2015

FreedomWorks has signed onto the following coalition letter, led by the R Street Institute. This letter urges support for H.R. 4350, a recent bipartisan bill introduced by Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) that would repeal the Cybersecurity Act of 2015. As you may recall, this major bill was tucked into the omnibus government funding bill in December of last year, with no chance for most lawmakers to even read it. The bill contains fundamental flaws with regard to privacy and due process, detailed in the letter below, and should be repealed.

Congress Poised to Pull a Cybersecurity End-Around

The Senate and House intelligence committees are working towards selling out Americans' privacy this weekend for the illusion of cybersecurity. Specifically, the Senate's Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) and its two House counterparts (the NCPAA and PCNA) are merging -- but indications are that they may be doing so by adopting the worst provisions from each of the three bills. Worst of all, the majority of the input appears to be coming more from the intelligence committees, and not from the people who would actually have oversight of the information sharing regime in the Homeland Security Committees.

Senate Set to Advance Flawed Cybersecurity Bill That Feeds Government Surveillance

This week, the Senate is set to finally take up its Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), S. 754. In the wake of several high-profile international hacking events, CISA is being sold as an essential component of national cybersecurity. Unfortunately, not only does this bill not address the fundamental difficulties with protecting our critical data, it also creates perverse incentives for companies and adds further to the massive collection of our private data by government agencies.

House to Vote on Cybersecurity Bills with Major Privacy Issues

Next week is "Cyber Week" in the House, and two deeply flawed bills are heading to the floor that would further undermine the privacy of every American's data. These bills are intended to address the very real problem of companies having their databases hacked and their information stolen, but fail to adequately ensure that your personal information is protected when companies send information about these cyber attacks to the government.

Is new Cybersecurity Legislation about Security or Snooping?

The updated Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) easily passed through the Senate Intelligence Committee by a vote of 14-1. This is the fourth consecutive year that Congress will attempt to pass cybersecurity legislation.

Barack Obama signs new executive order that could put innocent Americans' property at risk

The steps the administration had taken to rein abuse of civil asset forfeiture were undermined on Wednesday when President Barack Obama signed an executive order that ignores Fifth Amendment protections for due process, authorizing the seizure of property from those who are merely suspected of cyber-crime.

As part of the complex montrosity known as Obamacare, people signing up for health insurance can have the help of Navigators - people with little training or experience wading through the most complex law ever passed. The manual for the program describes a system that will lead to privacy violations, personal embarrassment, and identity theft.
