It looks like this week the Senate will be voting on the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (S 3414). This bill is the Senate version of CISPA, and remains a solution looking for a problem.
Thankfully, the Senate has listened to the outcry over CISPA and has made a bill that better protects our privacy. However, it still authorizes companies to use cybersecurity as an excuse to engage in monitoring of user data and could prevent users from using privacy-tools such as TOR over their network.
