An improvement in Internet security doesn’t mean that Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) will be a threat to such progress. CISPA can help in stopping piracy which is rampant over the web. Basically, CISPA is not a threat in the improvement of internet security but this will help protect the world wide web against cyber attack.

According to ZDNet.com, CISPA is dubbed as “one of the most privacy infringing pieces of legislation ever to have hit the Capitol”. CISPA is the short term used for Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Two of the largest United States privacy groups described CISPA as “fatally flawed” and “misguided”. This Bill literally threatens or endangers the online privacy of all ordinary United States residents.

This Bill is more threatening that any other Bill from the time when the Congress amended in 2008 the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. CISPA is officially known as H.R. 624. It is a cybersecurity Bill designed to help prevent and protect against cyberattacks on critical or important national infrastructure and also against other online attacks on private firms by means of collecting and sharing “cyberthreat information”.

The actual idea behind it is to let private firms to search personal and sensitive data from ordinary United States residents to be able to identify the so-called “threat information”. The personal and sensitive data will then be shared with other private firms and the United States government without requiring any warrant.
