A digital ally for digital activists, digital media advocates – Media Alliance
Digital activists, advocates for digital rights and advocates for civil liberties are all in a race to win support from the American people and from elected officials, as tech companies push for stronger protections in the fight against the cyber-attack that stole the Democratic National Committee’s e-mails.
The Digital Allies Alliance, a coalition of advocacy groups and tech companies, is the latest to launch a digital ally in Congress, with Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA) joining as a digital-rights ally in the House of Representatives.
Clark is one of several members of Congress who have pledged support for a cyber-security bill.
In a letter to President Barack Obama last week, Clark wrote that her bill, which she introduced on January 28, “will ensure that cyber attacks are appropriately punished and prevent future attacks.”
She wrote that the bill will also ensure that law enforcement can access data that is used to target people, which “would be critical to protecting the American public from future cyberattacks.”
Clark’s bill is one step in a long line of bills in Congress that aim to give citizens the tools they need to defend themselves and their data from cyber-attacks.
While Clark’s legislation is far from perfect, it is still an improvement over the current system, which leaves many digital rights advocates in awe at what it will mean to the digital community in the future.
While digital advocates were in awe of the passage of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) last year, the law’s passage last month is an example of the ways that CISPA’s new protections and enforcement provisions have changed the landscape of digital rights advocacy.
CISPA and its accompanying Cybersecurity Enhancement Act (CEPA) are two pieces of legislation that have gone through the House and Senate in the last several years, as they have passed the House twice and the Senate once.
Both bills, introduced in 2015, require companies to share the information that they have about cybersecurity threats with federal agencies in order to protect Americans.
While many CISPA supporters are supportive of companies sharing their information with the government, others are wary of sharing that information in order for them to prevent future cyber-enabled attacks.
Some privacy advocates are also concerned about the information being shared with the federal government, particularly if the information was used for criminal investigations.
For instance, CISPA requires that information be made available to the federal authorities when companies submit data to the government under the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CIISA), which would allow the federal agency to access this information.
This information would then be made public, in hopes that future attacks will be prevented.
“The bill is not perfect, but it is much more aggressive in its approach to cybersecurity than CISPA,” said Chris Vickery, an attorney and cyber security advocate at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
“CEPA and the Cyber-Cyber Security Act, which I believe is an important piece of legislation, are not perfect.
They do not go far enough.
The problem with the CISPA bill is that it is just one piece of a much larger package that includes the bill to increase data collection and data sharing between the government and private companies.
CISPSA is far more comprehensive than CISPRA, but CISPSA is much less stringent in what information it requires companies to disclose.”
The two bills have been around for quite some time, with the bills passing in both the House as well as the Senate in 2015.
But it took until recently for the two pieces to be formally signed into law.
The CISPA legislation passed the Senate on January 25, 2017, but was not fully signed into effect until February 28, 2017.
The Cyber-CISPRA bill passed the same day in the Senate.
The bill was signed into force on February 28 and included more privacy provisions that were not included in the CISPAA.
This bill also has a few privacy protections, including the requirement for the companies to notify the federal court, which would be used in cases of violations.
While the legislation does not contain any major privacy protections yet, it does provide some privacy protections to the companies that are currently required to comply with these privacy provisions.
“In the wake of the attacks of last November, the bill includes privacy provisions,” Vickery said.
“But it does not include a requirement for companies to do anything in response to such an attack.
So, if the government does want to ask you to disclose certain information about you, that information is still going to be protected from the government.
We’re hopeful that this is the beginning of the end of CISPA.”
This bill was first introduced in the Congress in 2015 by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Sen. Ron Wyden (D, OR).
The legislation included a provision that would have required companies to provide information on their customers to law enforcement, which is an extremely broad provision that could lead to companies revealing information about people to law enforcements.
This provision was included because of the significant impact that CISPSEA had
