Cybersecurity and privacy are clashing, as the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act is now an amendment to the White House-supported National Defense Authorization Act.
Hi, and welcome to the CloudMask video blog!
According to CSO Online, there are many opponents of CISA, especially in its new form as an amendment to the NDAA.
In a letter to United States President Barack Obama, 40 businesses and 31 citizens expressed their concerns about the bill. Despite the intention behind its creation, many believe that the CISA is a breach of American privacy and data confidentiality.
The letter read that CISA "fails to protect users' personal information. It allows vast amounts of personal data to be shared with the government, even that which is not necessary to identify or respond to a cybersecurity threat."
Regardless of whether the bill passes, organizations and citizens must implement data protection tools and data security measures that not only prevent the government from accessing personal records, but that hide that data from companies subject to CISA's proposed regulations.
With CloudMask, infrastructure breaches no longer mean data breaches. Insecure clouds and mobile devices no longer mean insecure enterprise data. And an insider with access to applications and systems can no longer see data.Share this article:
