Cispa Amendment Facebook Passwords



Bad news, Facebook users. U.S. employers may soon be able to require employees to fork over their social media passwords.

A last-minute amendment to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act -- known as CISPA -- banning such a practice was blocked by members of the U.S. House of Representatives, despite the passage of the broad cybersecurity bill overall.

The provision, proposed by Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Co.), was voted down 224-189, with Republicans constituting the majority.

"This is a very simple amendment that really does two things," Perlmutter told the House Thursday, before the vote. "It helps the individual protect his right to privacy and it doesn't allow the employer to impersonate that particular employee when other people are interacting with that person across social media platforms."

While Perlmutter warned of breached privacy and the potential to impersonate employees, as U.S. News & World Report notes, CISPA sponsor Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) called the Democratic congressman's proposal an attempt to kill the bill.

Perlmutter denied the claim, but Rogers still suggested that he instead address the employee privacy issue with separate legislation.

This is not the first time Perlmutter has introduced the pro-privacy measure. The Democratic congressman also attempted to tack on such a provision to the Federal Communications Commission Process Reform Act of 2012 and the earlier version of CISPA, both of which were never passed by the U.S. Senate.

The shame of this all is that it's only a matter of time.

Cyberwarfare is definitely the next frontier. Will people be more willing to accept this bill after someone wipes out all of Bank of America's account holdings or shuts down a north eastern power grid?

Gotta call BS here.

F.U.D.

There are literally dozens of other steps that can be taken that are more germaine to the issue/threat you've described.

The two aren't even closely related.

I only heard of the bill over the weekend so I don't know whats in it. A cliffs note version anyone?

My biggest national security fears are
-an emp in a major city
-a dirty bomb in a major city
-an attack on financial records

the third seems the most feasible.

Some people didn't even know what an assault rifle was until Newtown.

There are already the necessary measures to do this without encroaching on peoples privacy. Also, most attacks come from areas where there are no extradition laws to the USA. Why would a group launch an attack from somewhere they would get arrested?

that's a lame question. it's always some question of vague security and of course it never really works anyways.
