EFF and several other civil society organizations have declared a 'Stop Cyber Spying Week' in protest of several controversial U.S. cybersecurity legislative proposals, including the bill currently before Congress and the Senate called CISPA. From the EFF statement:
[T]he U.S. cybersecurity strategy envisions a voluntary cooperative regime where Internet companies are given broad-ranging immunities to surveil Internet users and downstream online services. This amounts to an erosion of personal privacy safeguards currently in place. Under this regime, an online company need only to assert a vague 'cybersecurity objective' and it will have carte blanche to bypass domestic laws and protections against privacy invasion.
This legislation is likely to have direct implications for Canadians. Canada and the United States have agreed to a joint 'Beyond the Borders Initiative' aimed at establishing a 'secure perimeter' around the two countries.
