Senate voting on CISA today. Tell Warren & Markey to vote no!

Using the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) hack as an excuse, Congress is trying to ram through CISA, a new network security bill that is long on surveillance and light on privacy protection.

Like the CISPA bill of years past, CISA, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (S.754), would allow companies to disclose data to the government without warrant. Data that would be automatically shared with the NSA and a host of other government agencies. Even the Department of Energy which has a worse record for data security than the OPM, could get access to this data; data that would not strip out information that could identify a specific person.

CISA is up for a cloture vote today, so call Senators Warren at (202) 224-4543 & Markey at (202) 224-2742 and tell them to oppose it this morning.
