Coalition Letter Opposing Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014 (June 2014)

We, the undersigned privacy, civil liberties and open government groups, write in strong opposition to the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014 (“CISA”). Among other things, the bill threatens to create a gaping loophole in existing privacy law that would permit the government to approach private companies; ask for “voluntary” cooperation in sharing sensitive information, including communications content; and then use that information in various law enforcement investigations, including the investigation and prosecution of government whistleblowers under the Espionage Act.
