Cyber Intelligence Sharing: Keeping America Safe or the Biggest of Brothers?

Argument in favor

Improves cyber security in both the public and private sectors. Fosters better communication between public and private sectors and creates an effective means of detecting and dealing with cyber threats.

Unfortunately, Cyber Attacks are happening everywhere and to everyone. In 2014 alone Target, Yahoo, At&T, Ebay, UPS, Apple Icloud, Home Depot, and Google were all Hacked. What do you think these Hackers did? They accessed millions and millions of peoples credit and debit card information, their emails, the information within their emails, their home addresses and contact information. Whats more? These hackers use our own computers as "zombies" to launch greater attacks on bigger institutions. Private companies are hesitant to share information of an attack because it would hurt image and investors. The government is scared to share information of an attack because it might put informant at risk or give clues to the wrong people of how the information was obtained. We are fully integrated now and MANY agents are using that integration against the American People.

The privacy concerns are already completely invaded. Anyone who thinks our government can't reach into your pocket and tell you how much money you have in change is a dinosaur. The government has had the ability to reach into the lives of Americans since the cold war. This could help to catch cyber criminals inside and outside our borders and it is the next logical step in our war on terrorism.

This streamlines the process of communication in prevention of cyber attacks. Who can argue about being better prepared?

Argument opposed

Creates an Orwellian police state where nearly all modes of communication can be legally surveilled by the government. Opens deep privacy concerns around data sharing between the pubic and private sectors.

The NSA is constantly looking for one more "reason" to collect information on Americans and silence those who decent.

This will be an invitation for government to monitor citizens, and will be an infringement on the individual's right to privacy.

Cyber security is available without government involvement. The government has already taken enough of our freedom. I don't want them to take any more. You shouldn't either.

    Partnerships between the private sector and government can help to make processes more streamlined and efficient. Do you think the same thing applies to cyber intelligence sharing?

    The vague wording in the bill gives companies the unrestricted power to hand over private information to the government. One critic noted: "New provisions were added to the bill. They claimed to “limit” the government’s authority granted in the bill, but all the new items say are [sic] that privacy protection can be circumvented for “investigation and prosecution of cybersecurity crime, protection of individuals, and protection of children.” So as long as the government can claim that any of those three issues are at stake, anyone and everyone’s personal information can be delivered directly to them, effectively nullifying privacy on the web."

    "Those who would sacrifice essential liberty to purchase a little temporary security deserve neither liberty nor security." ~ Benjamin Franklin. The energy generated by our founding fathers spinning in their graves at the Orwellian surveillance state that we have today is sufficient to power the free world.

    We need protection from hackers, especially China and Russia. They are very likely to raid our Government systems, health care, and military. They steal any US secrets they can.

    I don't want us to become victims of a cyber Pearl Harbor. Since the law will be triggered in the even of a cyber attack, we will have the means to formulate and execute a national response. Unless, of course, we as a nation agree to lose our freedom and independence in the face of a pitiless aggressor. I don't, so I support this bill.

    Everyone has the right to privacy, and any program that infringes that right has the potential of becoming corrupted.
