On August 2nd the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 was defeated by the US Senate. This bill would have allowed big companies to track what we do on the Internet and then give that information to the government. While this is great news for the cyber community, this does not mean that this is the end of this type of legislation.
You might have heard about the new Senate Cybersecurity bill S. 3414. The good news is that it is not CISPA. However, there are some downsides to this new bill.
