How Your Information Could Soon End up in the Hands of the NSA — and What You Can Do About It

Congress just made it easier for the NSA and FBI to get your private information. 
Tucked into Congress’ 2,000 page spending bill passed today was a controversial cyber-surveillance rider. This provision, which was strongly opposed by the ACLU, is yet another iteration of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which we have repeatedly criticized as a surveillance bill that would have done nothing to stop cyber breaches, such as the Anthem or OPM hack. In an apparent flip-flop, the Obama administration appears to support inclusion of the rider — despite his opposition to similar proposals in the past.
