House Panel to Reintroduce Controversial Cyber Bill

Just when you thought SOPA/CISPA debate was dead and buried, along comes a new push from the House Intelligence Committee to reintroduce the Cybersecurity bill for consideration. The recent cyber-attacks against banks and newspapers along with sensitive government agencies have given new life into privacy protection concerns, prompting a new look at CISPA.

The bill was "developed in close consultation with a broad range of private sector companies, trade groups, privacy and civil liberties advocates, and the executive branch," according to the House Intelligence Committee leaders.
