CISPA draft allows Internet companies to share customer data and communications with NSA

CISPA draft allows Internet companies to share customer data and communications with NSA 16 Apr 2012 New revisions to a proposed federal cybersecurity law still would permit Internet companies to hand over confidential customer records and communications to the National Security Agency. A recent torrent of criticism prompted the politicians behind the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act to circulate a revised version of CISPA this evening before an expected floor vote next week.
